What's Happening in 1H

FRIDAY NEWSLETTER

 

FROM THE DESK OF MRS. HOLZINGER

 

I would like to officially wish everyone a happy New Year. We had a crazy start after the long holiday with 2 snow days and I was unable to properly wish you all a happy New Year. I hope everyone had a great holiday. Thank you again for showering me with kindness, generosity and thoughtfulness during the holiday season. It was appreciated more than you can ever know.

Some students have accidently brought home their pencil boxes / supply cases over the holiday break. We need these in school for daily work. If you would kindly send these back to school it would be appreciated.

We will be going outside for recess any day that is over 32 degrees (so long as snow is plowed and wind chill cooperates). Please be sure to send in hats and gloves when you feel it is appropriate.

Only 27 more days until the Winter Olympics!
