FROM THE PRINCIPAL:

With only 12 weeks left in this school year, we are working hard.  Next month, we will have different assessments beginning, particularly in the older grades.  Regular attendance will be important.  Please remember to send your child in with any clothing they need for the weather- we will be going outside most days whatever the weather and they will get wet and eventually muddy.  Extra socks and pants, splash pants, are all a good idea.
