Seasonal Reminders

WINTER CLOTHING

Please make sure all students come to school prepared to go outside.   2nd grade: All boys and girsl must wear snow pants and boots if there is snow on the ground.  This keeps them warm as well as dry.  Of course they should have a warm jacket, a hat, and mittens or gloves.  Thank you for taking the time to help your child come prepared. 

St. Patrick's Day
