  • December 4 - 8, 2017 Hello families,To our surprise today we had the school’s elf visiting the kindergarten classroom.  The kids were very excited and did a great job showing the elf how much they could do.With snow in the forecast I wanted to let you know that children do need snowpants and boots to play out in the snow on the playground.  If they do not have these items students will be asked to play on the basketball court where the snow is plowed.  If you could also label snow pants, especially if they are black, that is very helpful.  Lastly, if anyone would like to make donations of clorox wipes and tissues to the classroom that would be greatly appreciated ...

  • Week of 11/13 - 11/21/17 It is hard to believe we have reached 52 days of school.  These students continue to amaze me everyday with their excitement, cooperation, and caring ways.
