Hi Parents,

Happy New Year and welcome back! This past week the children talked about resolutions. Many of the children made a promise to themselves to improve in an area, help someone or try something new!

There are a number of afterschool clubs this semester, so please let your child’s teacher know if there will be a change in dismissal on club days.

The 100th day of school is fast approaching! We have a tentative date of Monday, January 27th (date may change due to weather). On this day, kindergarten students will dress up as their 100 year old selves and participate in a variety of math and literacy activities; all things 100! 🙂 More information will be coming home soon.
