Principal's Update 1-21-19


Winter Weather: Good 'ol New England weather is here!  Moving forward,  students with all 5 items (hat, jacket, mittens, snow pants and boots) may play in the snow, students without all 5 items may play on the hard top.  We reviewed this at our All School meeting this week, so students are familiar and know what they need!


Word of the week:  Our word of the week is punctual. We will introduce the word on Tuesday morning and then continue to discuss and use it throughout the week. A child-friendly definition for punctual could be,  someone who is on time.  A great book to pair with the word is Late for School by Mike Reiss.


Upcoming Dates: 

January 18th: Patriots Sprit Day! 

January 29th: 1/2 Day PD.  AM Prek dismissal at 11:30AM, K/1 Dismissal at 11:50AM.
