And just like that, January is done. Hard to believe!
A few reminders of upcoming events:
1. Class pictures are on Monday, February 3rd. Student's should wear dress code or better. Please remember to follow some basic guidelines- no spaghetti straps unless a sweater is worn etc. If your child is getting a re-take of an individual picture they must have the order form with them on Monday.
2. Student will have a free vision screening on Tuesday, February 4th. This is non-invasive with students simply reading a chart. The results will be sent home by Nurse Francis.
2. Valentines Day will be celebrated at the end of the day on Wednesday, February 12th. This is not a party, just a Valentine exchange.
3. Conferences are on Thursday, February 13th and are student led so your child must attend.
