Learn to Be Fit
All students participate in Learn to Be Fit (gym class) on Monday and Tuesday. Students are expected to wear shoes or have shoes to change in to that are meant for outdoor activities. Sandals and flip flops are not appropriate for safety reasons. Beginning after the September break, if students do not have appropriate shoes, we will give them a pair to wear for gym at a $3.00 charge. The shoes will then be theirs to keep. If your child needs shoes for Learn to Be Fit, please email Ms. Katie at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bus/Car Rider Sign Up
Because we want to ensure each child is where he/she needs to be at the end of the day, it is very important that you tell you classroom teacher what mode of transportation your child will be taking most of the time and to let the classroom teacher know directly by noon if there is a change. We understand schedules change last minute and that there will be exceptions. However, it’s very difficult for the teachers, as well as your child, not knowing until the end of the day whether he/she is taking the bus or getting picked up. It creates extra anxiety for everyone that can be alleviated with a little planning and early communication. We appreciate your cooperation.
CONGRATULATIONS Ms. Becca!
Ms. Becca, our Speech Pathologist at all of our schools, accomplished a major feat this weekend. She swam across the Straits of Mackinac! Because of currents and wind conditions, the trip was somewhere between 4.1 and 5 MILES! What?! Way to go, Ms. Becca!
