Students: Please take your snow pants, gloves, and hats home and have your parents wash them.

Student Challenge: I challenge each student in this building to say “hi” to someone they have never spoken to before. Saying a simple “hi” can make someone’s day much better.
Students – we are starting our Spring Box Tops Collection. Bring in your box tops starting this week and help your class win the prize for most box tops collected. The money we receive from our Box Tops will go towards the new playground equipment we are looking to get for our playground.
