A Little Chill Doesn’t Stop the Fun!

As fall sets in, the days, especially the mornings,  are getting cooler. But that doesn’t stop us from going outside at morning and lunch recess to get a bit of fresh air and have a bit of fun!

Please make sure that your child bring weather appropriate clothing as the season change brings on the cooler weather.

As a reminder, we have lost-and-found bins located in our hallway near our main entrance. Feel free to drop by the school and see if any items belong to your child.
