We have reached the end of April. We are down to 27 school days left. These days will be filled with many activities to build your child's knowledge and get them ready for the next grade level they will be attending. Please check the newsletter out for important dates. We have provided some "Save the Date" reminders.
Tomorrow is Administrative Professional's Day. We cannot thank Mrs. Boetscher and Mrs. Blazina enough for all of their hard work in our office. Next week we will be celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week. Please take some time to send a note to your child's teacher to thank them for their work to educate your children.
