Dress for the Weather
We will be going outside for recess as long
as it is not raining or snowing and it is
above freezing. Please make sure your
child has a coat and/or gloves, a hat and a
scarf if needed. We need the exercise and
the fresh air, too. 

Early Dismissals and Agendas
If you know you will be picking your child up early during the day, please send
a note in with your child in the morning. This helps us prepare to have your
child ready to leave on time.
It is important that each night your child look at his/her agendas to make sure
they are completing all of their homework. Parents, please sign at the
bottom of the page saying that you saw what your child was responsible for.
Thank you!
