Elementary K - 5 Home


It has been great to be back this week!   I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and wish everyone a very Happy New Year.  Cold weather is definitely here so please remind your child(ren) to have their warm clothes at school for when they get a chance to go outside and play.  We do go outside in the morning and at lunchtime along with a recess throughout the day as long as the feel like temperature is above 0 degrees.  Having warm clothes will make it more enjoyable to them. 

 Please see the upcoming dates below and mark your calendars.  Enjoy your weekend and we will see you on Monday.
