We had a wonderful day at Washington today for the family picnic. It almost felt as if the sun came out specifically for our picnic this afternoon. Thanks to all the families who were able to join us for this wonderful community event. I would also like to thank our staff for their flexibility and help in coordinating so many additional people throughout the building. It was great to spend the day together as a community right before a long weekend. Reminder - NO SCHOOL on Friday, May 26 and Monday, May 29. Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.


Thank you to all the families who stopped by the south playground last night to visit and wave us good night. We lucked out with good weather overnight.

Thanks again to the staff members who participated in the fun on Wednesday evening!
