With all the recent snow and ice, it continues to be important for all students to have proper winter outerwear.  Please make sure your child comes to school with boots and snowpants as well as mittens, jackets and hats, so they can stay warm and play safely on those surfaces. Our Lost & Found tub still has a number of these items left behind; thank you for checking it to see if your child owns any of these items.                                                                                                  

With the approaching storm, I wish you a safe three-day weekend; warmest regards,

Jennifer Prileson
