Other Bits of Information
Buses on Tuesdays and Thursdays: Due to the number of students participating in the PTO’s Extended Day program, less students will be riding the afternoon buses on Tuesdays and Thursdays so the bus may get to the stops earlier than normal. Please be at the stop five minutes early on Tuesdays and Thursdays until April vacation.
Box Tops Contest: The contest ended and it looks like Mrs. Carey’s class and Mrs. Hunt’s class brought in the most Box Tops. Congratulations to those classes. One everything is totaled, we will let you know how much was raised during the month of February.
