Principal's Message

The holiday season is officially here and the magic and excitement can be felt throughout the school! What a special gift our children have to see life through the lens of imagination and anticipation. How lucky we are to be surrounded by them each day.


My favorite part of my day is to visit classes and see your children learning and progressing. Thank you for all of the hard work you do at home to support our teachers, and for making it a priority to have your students here on time so they don't miss important instructional time. It makes a huge difference!


Thank you to all of our parents, teachers, and staff for the many activities throughout the month of November. We appreciate those who ran a successful Book Fair, Red Ribbon Week, and our Veterans Day celebration. Each of these events adds to the depth of our children's well being.


As a reminder, our 2nd term SEP Conferences will be held on Thursday, December 1 from 3:40-8:00 pm. Your child's teacher will send you information on how to sign up for a time to visit.


Lastly, as the weather has turned cold, please make sure that your child comes to school each day dressed to be outside. We will be sending students outside for recess every day unless it is raining, snowing, or if the temperature is below 20 degrees.


I hope you have a very happy holiday season!


Sincerely,

Ms. Grant

💡 Reminders

Cold Weather Policy

It's that time of year where we need to start thinking about cold weather. We almost always send students outside for recess. The fresh air and opportunity to run around helps them concentrate so much better in class. We encourage students to wear a coat, hat, mittens, boots, etc., especially during snowy days and on days where temperatures are below 40 degrees.

Please click the link below for additional details about our Cold Weather Policy, including what to do if you desire your student to stay inside for recess.
