A few tidbits to remember…

  • It is that time of the year where students start bringing lots of articles of clothing with them to recess. It is very important that students can independently put their outside gear on.  Please practice if they are unable to.
  • Please try your best to have your child to school by 8:40.
  • Homework is due on Friday.

Thanks,

 

Mrs. Burks
