If those celebrations include food, we ask that donations strive to be healthier options, such as; fruit and/or veggies, cheese & crackers, baked rather than fried chips, or any other option that you come up with. As always, food donations must be nut free! There is absolutely no expectation that families donate food for celebrations, but if you do, we ask that you help us in making our school a healthier place to be!<br>Secondly, the Kindergarten classes hosted their Concert night last week with tremendous success. Other classes may be performing songs next week on our last day before the holiday.
