Due to our snow days, we no longer have Monday, February 19th as a day off. It is a full day of school. District transportation offices are aware of this change, so you should receive normal transportation from your district, unless you've been contacted by them and told otherwise.

Family Connect Night

Our key spring event is Family Connect Night. Not only is this a great time to meet with the whole school family, but Mr Warner presents his annual State of the School Address and we kick off our spring Serve-a-Thon event. Every family is expected to attend, so please RSVP here. An official invitation was sent home last week with details, including what each family needs to bring for our shared Potluck Dinner.

Serve-a-Thon Kick-Off

Don't forget that Tuesday night's Family Connect Night kicks off our big Serve-a-Thon season. Everyone will have a chance to start preparing Serve-a-Thon letters and addressing envelopes on Tuesday night. Better yet, if you are a returning family, we will provide address labels for you with addresses of the individuals who sponsored you last year.

If we, as a school family, prepare a total of 750 completed and ready-to-mail letters by the end of the evening, the whole school family will enjoy donuts on Thursday, 2/22/18.
