Mrs. Monday's Kindergarten News

From Mrs. Monday...

Thank you SO much for making "Teacher Appreciation Week" so special for me. I really appreciated all of the nice cards, gifts, candy, flowers, and kind words. I was completely overwhelmed with the gift card basket today. WOW! You are so generous. I was completely speechless when I arrived at school today! I think we need to have "parent appreciation week"! I cannot believe we only have 13 days of school left. We have had an amazing year. I am going to miss this class so much!


Have a great weekend! Happy Mother's Day!

From the Clinic...

Parents,

As you should be aware, all medications are required to be transported to and from school by the child’s parent or guardian. As the school year comes to a close, I want to remind you that all medications will need to be picked up by 4:00 pm the last day of school (May 25th). Any medications left in the clinic will be discarded and will not remain in the clinic. If your child currently has medications in the clinic that are not likely to be used again, please consider picking medications up prior to the final day of school to avoid long lines.

Thank you,

Denise Stanger, RN School Nurse
