A Note from Mrs. Grant

This week we have no school on Monday. So we will start the week on Tuesday and have another short week. We also have the School Auction on Saturday, February 22 at 6:30pm at the State Museum. I hope all of you can attend!

Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. This week our Snack Shack managers are Gus and Camilla. Snacks and the receipts must be brought in on Tuesday. Receipts for reimbursement can be brought to Mrs. Davis in the office with a note detailing it is for Snack Shack. Thank you for your support!

Below is a list of the students who are on Honor Guard this week. If your student is participating, they must stay until the end. Please do not pick them up during car line unless I have been given a note. Thank you for your support!
