Thank you!:

A huge thank you to so many parents that donated to our holiday celebration for staff. Next week they will be involved in Mission Possibles – engaging in fun holiday tasks and earning points/prizes.  We great appreciate the gift cards and poinsettias.

We also greatly appreciate the parents that donated time to wrap gifts for staff earlier this week and again next week. This is a such a wonderful gift to staff.

Positivity Project:

Topics to be covered are humility and Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence. What wonderful traits to discuss during this special time of year. 

Social Media:

We are requesting that parents are aware of social media platforms your children are visiting and engaging in.  We have had a recent rise of vandalism (writing on bathroom walls) as part of a Tik Tok Challenge.  Please help us in keeping our building a clean, safe and inviting environment by talking with your students about appropriate behavior and HERO expectations.

Personal Items:

Due to COVID we no longer have an official Lost and Found.  We will hold items for approx. 3 days before discarding them.  Please label all personal items – coats, hats, lunchboxes, backpacks, etc. so we can return them to their owner when found.
