Week 15: Dec 4-8, 2017

December has arrived along with an arctic blast that we should feel the full force of by Wednesday morning.  Make sure your child has warm winter clothing for the recess.  Also, if at all possible, put your last name on the tag of the jacket/coat.  Labeled clothing helps lost items become found items.

A few highlights for this week:  HOLIDAY SHOP sponsored by the PTC (M-TH), Candy Cane Sale (Sponsored by 5th graders) and Jet’s Pizza Night on Thursday.

Here’s to a fantastic first week of December!
