Please check the monthly calendar for important dates.


It is my intent to have the children outside for morning and lunch recess everyday possible. Free play and exercise are important components of a healthy lifestyle and a favorite part of every child’s day. So, let’s bundle up with coats, gloves, mittens, scarves, and other appropriate outerwear and get out there and have fun! Thanks for your assistance and support!


Have a great week!
