Piano Teacher Needed
Do you play piano? We are looking for a parent to help with our choir by being an accompanist. This would be during the fall, while Mrs. Leonard is on maternity leave. We have a staff member who will be the choir director but we are in need of a piano player. This would fulfill FIP hours. Choir meets  Monday  and Wednesday from  7:30 - 8:00am.  Please contact Mrs. Conway if you are interested.  

Early departures for summer
The last day of school is Tuesday, June 19. If your student(s) will be leaving for summer prior to the last day of school, please email Barb ASAP to let her know . Please make sure your students gather all belongings from the school and classroom before you leave.

Lost & Found
Please make sure to browse the lost & found to collect any items belonging to your family. All unclaimed items will be donated at the end of the school year.

It's that time of year again! Summer will be here soon. We are again planning to have a summer reading program for interested students.
