Friday, May 24, 2013: Final parent child activity 9:30-10:30 in the cafeteria. (We have moved it back 15 minutes later to accommodate for breakfast in the cafeteria)
Wednesday, May 8, 2013: Half day for all students. The afternoon class will attend class from 8:45-11:20. No class for the morning class students.
Please remember to put sunscreen on your child before they come to school. We will be conducting a variety of outdoor activities as the weather is warming up. Our activities will include going to Bixler Park and visiting the “duck pond” on campus.
In addition, please remember that flip flops are very difficult for the children to run and play outdoors in. Please dress your child in sandals that buckle/close so that the children can run/jump and explore without added risk.
