Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom’s on this email!  Hope you are all having a fantastic day with your children.  The weather is beautiful so hopefully you were able to get outside!

As the weather is getting warmer, please have your children wear sunscreen as we are still going outside at recess and lunch.  It is also important to send them with a water bottle.  We do not provide water bottles at school as we have water fountains. Some children do not like the water at school so sending in water is important.

If anyone has an extra fan that they are not using and would like to donate to the school, we would all greatly appreciate it.  The school does not have air conditioning.  Just bring it to the office if you have one to donate. Thank you in advance.

We have many field trips coming up so please make sure you have signed all the appropriate forms and please fill out the consents online if you have not done so already.  They have to be done every year and serveral parents have still not completed them.  See below for the link.  Thank you
