Reminders from the Office:
From the Office;  BRRR!!!!!  It’s not officially winter yet, but it certainly feels like it!  Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for outdoor play at recess - hat, mittens, and winter jackets.  The children will be going out to play each day unless temperatures are unreasonably cold (less than 20 degrees).
Safety & Security Reminder:  The main entrance door where walkers enter and exit will be unlocked between 7:55 am and 8:10 am.  If you are dropping off your child past 8:10 am, kindly walk them into to office and sign them in on the tardy sheet so that they are not marked absent.  Also, please remember, all exterior doors are locked during school hours.  Parents or guardians entering with their child or by themselves need to use the main entrance  and report to the office.  Please understand that parents are not allowed to disrupt instructional time by visiting classrooms unless specific prior arrangements have been made with the teacher.  

Lost and Found:  The lost and found items are piling up in the cafeteria!  If you or your child are looking for missing sweatshirts, jackets, hat, glove, or any stray items  be sure to have your child check in this area.    All items will be placed in the Memorial hall lobby during Parent conferences on December 4th.   You might find that one item you didn’t even know you lost.   All items will be donated to charity if not picked up by December 19th.
