A note from our principal

Dear Families,

Our playground is a winter wonderland. It is also cold! Please make sure your child has appropriate winter gear to wear. We go outside to play as long as the temperature is above 0 with wind chill factored in. We have extra hats and gloves in our clothing closet as supplies last. Please let us know if your child could use some.

Hot Chocolate Warm-Up

Chocolate, chocolate, hot and steamy,

Pour that chocolate in my cup.

Chocolate, chocolate, smooth and creamy,

Don’t be stingy, fill it up!

Would you add a whip cream dollop?

Slop it in and do not stop!

Would you like you sweet hot chocolate

With marshmallows on the top?

Chocolate, chocolate, hot and steamy,

Warms me up from nose to feet.

Chocolate, chocolate, smooth and creamy,

Lovely winter chocolate treat!
