It was wonderful to see so many families attend last week’s International Celebration Dinner, held each year to honor the various countries and cultures across the world and within our own school community. Many thanks to our Family-School Partnership Team and P.T.O. for supporting this event. Many thanks, too, to Ms. Chelsea Rood and our Grades 4-5 Chorus for singing songs from different cultures.
We also had a good turnout for the first of our open gym sessions on Saturday. These times for fun and fitness for families are 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for the next three Saturdays. (Please refer to the school calendar for more information.) Feel free to join us!
Kindergarten registration is now taking place for the 2015-16 school year. If you have a child who will turn 5 years old before September 1, 2015, s/he is eligible for Kindergarten. Please call or stop by the school as soon as possible to register him/her for next year. The earlier a family registers a child, the more likely they are to receive one of their top choices of schools. For more information, please contact the school at 864-8479.
Rehearsals for “The Hobbit” are going well. Our cast and chorus are working hard for upcoming performances on Friday, February 13th at 7:00 p.m. and on Saturday, February 14th at 4:00 p.m. (Both performances will be at Lyman Hunt Middle School.) Please plan to join us! We are so thankful for the Very Merry Theatre, which is sponsoring this annual production.
Thanks for all you are doing—and will do—to make our school community one of safety, respect, and responsibility for all who come through our doors.
