FYI AND REMINDERS:
LabLearners has installed our new STEM lab! A few more details have to be completed and then it will be ready for use.
-Label all clothing, school uniforms, and gym attire.  We have many unclaimed items with no names.
-Please do not double park your cars, leave cars unattended, or bring dogs to school. It’s a safety concern to our school families.
-Please show concern for other children and teachers by keeping your child at home when he/she is ill. Remember that your child must be 24 hours fever free before returning to school.

As we journey through Lent, let us pray in the true Christian spirit and work together for each other and for the children who are our basic trust.

Ms. Stefano, Faculty, and Staff
