Thank you to all the moms and dads who signed up to be room parents in your children's classrooms!

Whether you are a first-time room parent or a seasoned pro, we would like to invite you to attend a training meeting to learn all about the ins and outs of room parenting. We will go through an outline of fun school events, share some best practices and have a time for questions and answers.

COMFORT KITS ARE DUE 9/30

Please send your child to school with their comfort kits by September 30th!

The information (plus a quart sized zip-lock bag) was attached to the first day packet at Dog Day. If you misplaced the packet, you can use your own quart sized bag and find the instructions (along with more information) on our website here.

We are asking for each child to have a comfort kit in their classroom in case there is an extended  emergency situation. Teachers will distribute kits to students to keep them calm and reassured until  parents are reunited with them.

Thank you for considering your child's emotional wellbeing and sending in a comfort kit by the 30th!


THERE'S STILL TIME TO ORDER YEARBOOKS!

If you didn't get a chance to order a yearbook yet, don't fret! You can still place an online order here.
