  • October:  During the month of October, students and faculty will work together to increase our water consumption during the school day by challenging ourselves to drink 2,000L by October 31.  Please send a water bottle with your child to school each day so he/she can join in and help us exceed our goal.

  • If your child attends after school care, please be patient as we deal with weather extremes.  We do not go outside if the heat index is 95 degrees or above. In this case, we will play in the gym.
