Tomorrow is our field trip to Muddy Run.  We plan on leaving school first thing in the morning.  Please make sure your child is on time for school tomorrow.

In order for this day to be a huge success we need your help.

  • If your son or daughter is packing their own lunch, please have them put it in a plastic bag and write their name in large print on the outside of the bag.  Everything must be disposable (we will not bring anything home).
  • Please send a water bottle along with your son or daughter.   It does not appear that we will experience high temperatures tomorrow, but we will have water stations throughout for the children to stay hydrated.  They can take a disposable water bottle or a plastic one.  Each child will be responsible for their own water bottle ALL day.
  • Please send your child to school with a backpack they can carry with a towel, and shoes they can wear in the water. They will be getting in a stream tomorrow, wearing shoes all day that are wet will be no fun!

Thank you so much for your help!

Just a reminder!!!!

Back to school night is tonight from 4-6pm!

The book fair is also open in the gym hallway, so please check it out after your classroom visit!

Here we go………
