There are many celebrations and remembrances happening this week with Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year, and Presidents' Day. I hope you have some time with your family to participate! We are asking our staff to park on the East side of the school to allow for parking spots as close to the parent pickup/dropoff as possible, to reduce the wait for cars as they drive through the line. We are also adjusting to have our oldest students come out first as they are quicker about finding their ride home. We are trying to make improvements and thank you for your patience as we continue to implement new ideas. Please watch for our students in our crosswalks, too. Please avoid looking at your phone or texting when driving to keep all of us safe! -Appreciatively, Dr. Bair, Principal
Also--
Wednesday, Feb 17th is National Random Acts of Kindness Day. On this day we will be encouraging staff and students to wear shirts with kind messages or a shirt that means something special to them. 🙂
