Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Please accept our apologies for the delay of the bi-weekly Tuesday Take Home. Several of us were unexpectedly out yesterday, hence the reason for the delay.
We hope that those who celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday had an enjoyable time with family and friends. For all, we hope that you were able to get some rest and have some fun during the extended weekend. As we transition to December (already?!) we want you to mark your calendars for some upcoming events.

  • Next Wednesday, Dec. 6th the Parent Caregiver Organization will meet to continue their fundraising efforts and to consider opportunities for parents and caregivers to come together socially off school grounds.
