Thank you to all the students and parents that participated in Read-A-Loud
Day on Tuesday. I also want to thank Ms. Napolitan for coordinating the
activities. Students that read or had someone read to them, for 20 - 30
minutes on Tuesday were awarded with an extra recess on Wednesday!
The traffic congestion after school is an increasing concern. Buses are
lined up on 104th Street and we find a number of adults crossing between
them. We are in the process of establishing an additional crosswalk to
accommodate those pedestrians. Please use the crosswalk at all times when
crossing the street and remind students to use them also. We need to be
role models for our children.
A reminder to parents of our Fifth Grade Students that tonight is our
Annual Puberty Information Night. An information notice went home with
fifth graders last week.
