A Note from Mrs. Grant

This week we will continue to discuss our Lenten journey. We will also have the book character parade on Monday at 2pm. Please remember your child should dress up as a character from a book, but they may not have props that can be distracting during class. I look forward to seeing what each of my sixth graders will dress up as!

Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. This week our Snack Shack managers are Camilla and Connor. 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!
