News From the Office…

We finally made it back to school for a short week after some crazy weather!! We are very glad to be back again!  Hopefully that was one of the last big snow storms to hit for the Winter! Time will tell. We are looking forward to the next big stretch of school before it is Spring Break. We have about 7 weeks until Spring Break which starts on Mar 29. I cannot believe how fast the year is going! We have a lot of learning and fun coming up in those weeks! Parent teacher conferences will be going on Mar 11 and 13 as well as the book fair that same week! We will be having Valentine’s parties, a Boy’s event, and a Girl’s event put on by the PTC. The yearbooks came home this week as well and the kids were very excited to see them! We have a few extra in the office if you forgot to order one. The cost is $10. You can also call geskus photography and order through them.

Stay warm, be safe, and have a nice weekend!

Next Early Release…

Our next early release is on Mar 8. We will be dismissing at 12:15 on Mar 8. If your child is a car rider, please be at school between 12:10 and 12:15 for pick up.  Food Service will be offering a sack lunch on early release days. Children can order a lunch with their teacher in the morning and will have them to take to their destination.  The cost will be $2.25.  Free and reduced benefits will also apply.
