Dressing for the Weather of the Day & Lost and Found With colder weather approaching, we want to share information about dressing for the weather of each day. We encourage all of our students to come to school dressed appropriately for the weather of that day. Please assist your children to wear appropriate cold weather clothing.
If possible, please place a name or family name in coats and jackets, so we can get a lost coat or jacket returned.
Parade will begin at 1:30pm, and we invite all who would like to watch the parade to come and enjoy this event. Chairs will be set up in the auditorium and in the hallways for all to enjoy.
If your child has lost a jacket, coat, or any other item, please look through the Lost and Found bins located in the cafeteria. Thank you!
