School News

Our field trip to Pamplin Park is on Wednesday. We will leave school at 9:15 and return between 4:45 and 5pm. Please plan to pick up your child at 4:45 from the front of the school on Wednesday. If your child goes to BAS, he/she will just go there. Please watch the weather. It looks like possibly some rain. Your child should dress for the weather, bring a lunch, and money for the gift shop (optional).
