The warms weather has arrived and the school days are numbered. As we head into these next two weeks, it is important to maintain perspective, be flexible, and know that we are all in this together. I have tried to include some reminders to help you and your child depart from this school year on a positive note.

Lost & Found
Can't find that expensive sweatshirt or pair of shorts? Come and visit our Lost and Found. It is a veritable collection of hats, gloves, sweatshirts, pants, and shoes (yes, there are shoes). All items will be donated during summer break.
Grade 6 & Mel's
Just a reminder that this weekend is the perfect opportunity for student to make sure they are caught up on all of their work. All they need to do is log into the portal and it's all right there.
our last day of school is June 15th. We will dismiss at 1:15pm. The students will have lunch, but there will be no After School Program.
All Library books are to be returned. Your child can check their account for overdue books. Questions can be directed to Kathy Fencil at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lunch Account Balances
Please take a moment and review your child's lunch balance. All balances must be paid in full by the end of the school year. Leaving a positive balance is fine as it will be there for your child in the fall.
The Labels for Education Program is being discontinued. As a result, we will no longer be collecting them. Questions can be directed to Stephanie Richard at email@example.com.
