• Good Afternoon,

    Thank you for supporting our Valentine's Day parties.  The kids had a great time!

    I enjoyed talking to each of you who came to parent teacher conferences this week. Thank you for continuing to support your child's education and development at home. We are truly blessed to have such a supportive community.

    School will not be in session on Monday, January 17th in observance of Presidents Day. 

    Our Lanesfield learning excursion is coming up this week.  We will be traveling to Lanesfield on Wednesday, Feb. 19th.  Please send in a disposable sack lunch with your child unless you turned in the lunch form already.  Thank you to the Take Stock in CHE program for funding this wonderful experience.
