Family Information Drop-off:  

We are still missing a large number of Family Information packets.  Please get them into our office as soon as you can~ Thank you.

Student Pick-up/Drop-off: 

A reminder this Wednesday is Student work drop-off day.  Students will have the opportunity to send in a folder with their work for their teachers to see. At the same time, you will be able to pick up a folder of graded work and any papers or supplies they might need for the week ahead. The following week on Wednesday we will have another drop off-pick up day, where the folders will be exchanged again. This will continue while we learn from home. The table will be there from 7:30 AM until 3:00 PM. If, for some reason, this time does not work for you during any given week, please email your child’s teacher and let them know so that she can make accommodations.
