THIS WEEK’S NEWS

Thursday is Pajama Day and the Holiday Happening

Please help your child enjoy our most comfortable Spirit Day of the year… all students are encouraged to come and spend the day in their favorite jammies. Please make sure your child has shoes to wear for PE and recess.

After school, parents are invited to bring their child to the Holiday Happening in Rochambeau Park from 3 to 5. If it is heavily raining, the students will enjoy an abbreviated Holiday Happening from 2-3pm inside the school and be ready for a usual 3pm pickup.  We will notify you via email if we need to move the event indoors. Let’s hope for sun!
