IT’S GETTING COLDER!!! Please make sure your child brings a jacket to school each day – sometimes it may not seem too cold, but out on the playground it can be pretty nippy! Please make sure to mark your child’s name in their jacket. Each year, we seem to accumulate 10-15 jackets in the lost and found. Someone is buying a lot of replacement jackets!

In celebration of All Saints, students are invited to dress as their favorite saint that day. If they do, they will receive a
