Welcome back and Happy New Year to everyone! We are excited to be back with the students
this new year.
We have had some cold days over the holidays! It is
important that children are dressed for outdoor play. Extra mittens are a good idea. We are happy to accept mitten donations. We
always have students looking for mittens!
For our younger
students, dressing for cold temperatures is taking a bit more time. Please
encourage your child to do this on his/her own. Independence is an important
skill we want all students to develop!
