News From the Office…

This is the last post for 2018!  Please remember that as we are getting into cold and flu season, we ask that kids are fever free, vomit free, symptom free for 24 hours before returning to school. We will all be together with family and friends having fun, but we also see sickness start to amp up after the holidays as well. Thank you for your help as we try our best to not spread illnesses!

The Holiday Program took place last week and the kids did an amazing job! If you wanted a DVD of the program you can still get one. You just need to contact WCET TV directly at 616-669-3332. You will pick it up at their office (at the High School) and the cost is $15.

Winter Break will be here before we know it and we want you to have the date down on your calendar. We will be off for Winter break on Feb. 4 and 5.

Lastly, we want to say a big thank you to the PTC and all who volunteered to put on the Staff Christmas Breakfast this morning! It was delicious and we appreciate it!

We hope you all have an amazing Holiday break with family and friends and we will see you back on Jan. 7!!
