HONESTY, and the importance of being honest in all that we do!

Getting ready to do some spring cleaning?

Give us your old markers to recycle!

March 11th, 2019

Dear Families,

PTA Clubs are now in full swing! Keep sending in those change of dismissal notes each and every time your child has a club. It is the best way to ensure your child gets where they need to be!

As you know, this month we will focus on HONESTY, and the importance of being honest in all that we do. (Be sure to check out the Book Corner, we have another recommendation for a great book on honesty.)

Our Good Deed of the month will be collecting old, dry markers to recycle via the Crayola recycling program.

We will collect markers throughout the month of March, until Good Deed Day, Friday, March 29th.
