October 21st-25th

The students had a fun-filled week in Kindergarten! They went on their first field trip to the Pumpkin Patch on Tuesday and were super excited to pick out their perfect pumpkins! Special thanks to our parent and grandparent volunteers who drove and accompanied us to the Pumpkin Patch! We are incredibly grateful for all the support you have given us. It was also nice seeing all of you at the Parent-Teacher Conferences today to celebrate your child’s learning in the first term of Kindergarten. Thank you for being actively involved in your child’s education!
