April 11: Family Day 8:30-10:30
RSVPs are coming in for Family Day! If you haven't yet, please get those yellow sheets turned in as soon as you can. Please keep in mind that due to the format of the day, each guest can spend the day with one student. For example if you and another family member want to be with your 2nd and 4th grader, one of you will have to be in 4th and the other in 2nd. If you don't have another person to be with your other child, no worries!! We have plenty of volunteers to be paired of with students. If you have already sent in your yellow sheet, please think about another friend or relative who could come and let the office know which guest to place with which student. Also, please keep in mind that this is a special day for school-age children. If you have younger children not in school we ask that they stay home so that this is a special day for your older children.
