Dear Parents,

We hope everyone had a great weekend!

A big thank you to all the parents who helped with the field trip and the end of year party! The children had lots of fun and enjoyed the day very much!
The first graders 'Pet Day' will be held Monday, June 3rd from 8:00am- 9:45am. If your child chooses to bring a dog or cat to school on that day, the animal must go home with a parent/nanny/driver after the pet presentation, around 8:45am. Other animals may stay for the rest of the day but they must be in a cage/box. We invite all parents to the 'Pet Museum' which will be held right after the pet presentations. Also, we ask that your child come dressed as his/her animal/pet on that Monday.
