Spring is officially here…updates

Well folks, we are into the last three months of school!

  • With Spring officially here, and warmer temperatures coming soon, we are noticing some wetter, muddier and thus, smellier, mittens and snowpants – so please try to wash them as needed and keep our halls smelling fresh!
  • With wet feet too, it might be good to have an extra pair of socks stored in backpacks!
  • Lost and found items, from this winter, will be on display this week in the old library computer lab.  Please come see if any are yours!  Unclaimed items will be donated.
  • Lastly, we remind parents that April is full of 4 day school weeks- due to PD days and the Easter Break- so please make arrangements accordingly!
