On Friday, our class was visited by a leprechaun who turned our classroom upside down before we even got to school! He also visited us throughout the day. He was crazy and caused a mess, but the kids loved him and eagerly awaited his visits!

Has your child been keeping up with his/her reading calendar this month? We are halfway through the month! I love seeing how much your children love to read in the classroom!

Update for Tomorrow

This is a message from our Superintendent, Dr. Michael Leichliter…

Snow is forecast for Thursday night into Friday morning, and there is a possibility of a two-hour delay on Friday, March 1. If the start of school day is delayed, we would cancel the early dismissal scheduled for Friday, March 1, and students would be dismissed at the regular time. In either case, only afternoon kindergarten will be in session.Β  At this time, the current schedule has not changed, but we want to alert parents and guardians of the possibility that this may change. We will keep you updated via the district website, Twitter feed, cell phone app and local media outlets.

As always, thank you for your understand, cooperation, and patience!Β  Please let me know if you have any questions.
