SCHOOL NEWS

Notes from Mrs. Jackson
​​​​​​​
It was great to have a five day week and the children accomplished much.  I was very impressed with student reading and writing work this week and am always amazed by the many details our youngest students add to their pieces.  Please remember to send your children to school prepared to go outside for recess.  We do our best to get them outdoors and can find that difficult if many children come without appropriate coats, hats, shoes, etc… We hope you enjoy the long weekend ahead.
