With Gratitude:

  • Thank you, Anne Leonard, for coming in to sub for Jen this week!  We enjoyed having you in the classroom!
  • Thank you, Jenn Voorhees, for helping out the second week in a row with nordic skiing!  Another beautiful Friday afternoon to ski in the sun!! Unfortunately, this will be our last ski day at school.
  • Thank you to all who attended and/or volunteered their time or baking to Empty Bowls!  What a success for such a great cause!



  • Please sign-up for a student-led conference on either Thursday, March 19 or Friday, March 20.  Click here!
  • Please remind your student to always have a second pair of shoes here – one to wear indoors and one to wear outdoors.  It is important throughout the year – if it is not snow, then it is mud and grit that sneaks into the building. Thank you for your support with keeping our school clean. :)
  • We start our classroom activities at 8:03 each morning, thanks for having your child here on time so they can be part of the important morning routine. 
  • On Thursday hot lunch and El Tioga days please remember to send your child with a snack for mid-morning. 
  • Please put your names on food containers and water bottles. Kids don’t always remember which containers are theirs and we hate to see them go to waste.
