Usborne Book Fair Week

  April continues to fly by, and we are fast approaching our all-encompassing Usborne Book Fair week (Family Fun Nights, Muffins with Moms, Donuts with Dads!)  Hard copies of the flyer were placed in cubbies to go home, and I’m also attaching a PDF copy of the flyer to this email.  Please let me know if you have any questions, thank you and have a great day.  Enjoy the sunshine!

Welcome Spring

We first and foremost want to say thank you to our PSO for the fantastic job they did planning Grandparents’ Days! We hope everyone had a fabulous time, and we loved seeing the looks of pure joy on the faces of our students – and their grandparents! – all day.

A few reminders as spring settles in:
* Please label all spring jackets. We are only now remembering which winter jacket belongs to each child, just in time for the weather to turn!
* Please send in a warmer weather set of extra clothes; teachers will send home the winter set of extra clothes.
* Please send your child to school in shoes they are safely able to run and jump and play in. We are spending more time outside on the playground.

Thank you!
