AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS START TODAY!
Our fall semester for after school clubs starts today. A few clubs are starting later this month, like walking and running club, for example. Emails were sent to parents with participants in those clubs not starting this week.
Please send an extra snack and water bottle for your child if he/she is participating in an after school club.
Please be ready to pick your child up from the front office right when his/her club dismisses.
Children who have not been picked up within 10 minutes of their club's dismissal will be sent to aftercare and a $15 drop-in fee will be charged.
INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL PHOTOS
Individual school photos will take place this week! Teachers sent home notices with the specific day that your child's photo will be taken - either Wednesday September 6th, Thursday the 7th, or Friday the 8th.
Thank you to those parents who have volunteered to lend our fabulous photographer a hand. We still have a couple time slots for Wednesday yet to fill. Click here to sign up - we appreciate it!
