We look forward to sharing our music with you!

Cold Weather

The cold weather is here. Please send children with the big five - coat, hat, gloves, snow pants, and boots. We also ask that students have a pair of shoes as they do not allow them to wear boots in class. With so many students this year, we are not able to allow them to borrow items they forget. If there is a real need, please let the school know, and we will arrange for students to get the necessary items to have for their own. Remember, we go outside everyday for recess if the temperature is above 10 degrees.

Character Counts and Keys to Success for December 2019

Hello Parents, 

For the month of December, we are introducing the characters of caring and speaking with good purpose. While I advocate for students to care about each other all year long, this month I am encouraging the practice of thinking about others besides yourself. During your conversations with your students, discuss what it means to care about others. Caring encompasses many things including being kind, being compassionate, showing empathy, expressing gratitude, forgiving others and showing mercy, helping people in need, and finally, being charitable and altruistic. Enjoy this Christmas season with those you love the most and remember, sharing is caring.
