Newsletter for the week of January 18th

This month is already going so quickly and we will be into February before we know it. In February we will still be offering Art hour on Tuesdays at 11am and 1pm. Our Science/Stem day will be centered around Robotics on Fridays and will still have three sessions you can sign up for at 9am, 11am, and 2pm. These Friday times will probably fill up pretty quickly. I will send out the sign up next Monday for February.

In February, there are some days of no school. Monday, February 1st is a snow make up day. Since there has not been a snow day, this will be a day off. you can choose to still do school that day if you want to keep your schedule normal. However, just know that the in building students and staff are all off. Also, Monday, February 15th is a holiday celebrating President's day. There will be no school in the buildings and for all district staff on this holiday as well.

Sincerely,

Stacey Nickerson and Lisa Cobb
