News From the Office…
Just a reminder that if your child is not going to be at school, please call them into the office. They are marked unexcused until we hear from a parent to get them excused from their absence. We have been having a lot of kids not called in which means a lot of interruptions in the classrooms and a lot of phone calls made. We really appreciate your help with this! Also if you are going to be on vacation, you can fill out a form to get them excused for vacation. The form can be picked up in the office or you can print one off from the blog (found under the forms and procedures tab).
We want to give a big thank you to Erin Fredricks and ALL of the volunteers that helped out with the Holiday Shop!! It takes many people to pull this off and the kids have a lot of fun!
Holiday break is coming up and we want to get the dates out to you. Our last day is on Friday, Dec. 21 and our first day back will be Monday, Jan 7.
Have a wonderful weekend!
