I hope you enjoyed the snow day with your family on Friday! It sure was a lot of snow so I am glad everyone was home safe! This week is going to begin chilly, but end in the 40's with some rain. Please plan to have your child dress accordingly, especially for outdoor recess.

Tuesday evening is our monthly PTO meeting. This month the meeting will take place in the library at 6pm instead of 6:30pm. The meeting will last for approximately one hour. The PTO Board and I hope you will join us at 6pm on Tuesday.

Wednesday is Valentine's Day!!! The kids are excited to celebrate and I know the PTO has an amazing party planned for our students. As a reminder, students are invited to pass out Valentine's to their classmates, but we ask for no edible treats! Pencils, stickers and trinkets are great alternatives to edible treats if you'd like to give something in addition to a card. Please feel free to contact the main office if you have any questions related to this school policy.

Our Early Childhood students do not have school on Friday, February 16th due to conferences and home visits. Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade students have school as usual. There is no school on Monday, February 19th for all students due to President's Day.

I hope you have a great Valentine's Day and a wonderful week!

No problem! If your child needs to leave early from school, please inform the office by sending a note or calling prior to 3pm.  The office will be sure to inform your child's teacher and the teacher will ensure your child is packed and ready to be dismissed when requested. However, the office will not call your child down, nor will the teacher send your child down to the office, until you have arrived to pick them up. There could be a change in your plans, such as traffic, which may impact your arrival time. We want to make sure we maximize the amount of instruction time your child has. As soon as you arrive for pick up, we will call your child down to be dismissed. Thank you for understanding and please let the office know if you have questions.
