Open House is Thursday the 8th.  This is a chance to hear about our curriculum and a message from the principal.  Students will be required to stay at their parents side during the entire event.  It is not a time for children to free play around the school, so please support us by keeping a close eye on your kids while the teachers present.

Picture day is the 9th.  Please have your picture selections clearly marked with a check for the photographer.

Fall is here and so is the unpredictable weather.  Please send your child with layers of clothing for any type of weather.

We need snack donations (no nuts please) and Warrior Store donations (see me if you have questions about either.
