“Reel Learning” Night!

Come out for an evening of fun as we show off some of the “reel” learning that is taking place in our classrooms and school!  Be sure to stop by all the stations and have your child(ren) fill out their “fishing for learning” license.  A completed license enters your child in a drawing for a fishing rod or tackle box!  So come on out and join in on the “Fin-tastic” fun being planned!!

Starts at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, September 9th!  Hope to see you there!!

Spring Is Here!

We are certainly happy to see Spring finally arrive after the crazy winter we just had!  As the weather is warmer and students are getting that ‘spring fever’, please be sure your child wears shoes to school that have backs to them.  Students should not be wearing flip flops or ‘sliders’ for safety reasons.  We have found that children who wear flip flops have more injuries on the playground than other children.  Please have your child wear shoes that are comfortable to run and play in.  Thank you.
