September 17

Student Photo Day tomorrow, Friday, September 18

Hello Parents,

Please have students wear their full dress uniform tomorrow for photo day. Knight Days will resume next Friday.

Since it is healthier to be outside than inside, we need students to be ready for the rain. Please send them with umbrellas or rain gear when it is rainy so they can be outside for recess and afterschool pickup.

Thank you

Here’s to a great year of reading!
