A Note From Our Principal,
The year is off to a great start so far and we are enjoying spending the winter season with you and your children. This time of year our students spend extra time participating in our SPARK physical fitness program, ensuring that they are able to work on their gross motor skills no matter the weather. We’re having a great time jumping, dancing and playing together!
Please ensure your child comes to school ready to play outside with a hat, mitts, long pants and proper shoes. We want our children to be warm while they enjoy their outdoor play time during the day.
We also want to extend a heartfelt welcome to the new families that joined us in January and encourage you all to attend our new family coffee on February 21st from 7:30 – 9:00 a.m. Have a wonderful month and Happy Valentine’s Day!
