Tomorrow is our 11th annual TURKEY TROT!  We’re set to have a great time!  Students and staff will be trotting the bear path during relates arts, lunch, and recess periods.  Please send your child dressed in layers with hats and gloves so they stay warm and happy.
We are raising money for new trapeze jump equipment for the gym and two more Chromebook carts.  Our amazing trotters have provided so much technology for our classrooms and without you, we wouldn’t have these opportunities.  Let’s keep this going so every class can use the Chromebooks any time they’re needed!
