Delayed Opening Tomorrow

January 6 - 3:55PM

Dear Parents,

Due to the extreme temperatures we are going to experience tomorrow, we are calling for a delayed opening – school will begin at 11 AM. Morning students may attend from 11 to 1 if you wish, but they will need to bring a lunch with them.

Be careful on the roads – black ice is likely in the morning!

Thanks and a saying

January 3 - 10:43AM

Good Evening,

Besides the wicked weather, I wanted to say thanks to all of you who have been sending in Box Tops for Education. We just received a check for $185! I believe that’s for a quarter of a year, but it’s the easiest fundraiser because all it takes is for you all to clip those little squares off the products you use and send them in! I also want to thank Karen Hartmann for bundling them all up and sending them in for us. It may not seem like a lot of money, but it paid for us to have paper towels in the bathrooms and cups for the water dispenser for a couple of months. All things add up, and I truly appreciate your help! Keep on clipping!

Finally, a friend of ours, Alan St. Jean, who came to visit our school in the fall, sent me this saying that he received for the new year. I thought I’d pass it along to all of you. I think it’s great:

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever. – Neil Gaiman

Early Dismissal

January 2 - 8:35AM

Dear Families,

I have just decided to close the school today at 1 PM due to the impending weather. I am already getting reports of ice/sleet falling in some of the areas we serve.

Please drive carefully today!

Thanks, Deb


Today's Weather

January 2 - 6:40AM

Good morning everyone!

Mother Nature seems to be messing with school schedules once again! Please stay tuned to your email today. I am going to try hard to keep school open for the day, but I am guessing that we may call an early dismissal. Some schools are already calling for that, but I am going to wait and gauge how the snow is approaching, but be prepared for a possible 1:00 PM closing.

Please know that for now I am CANCELLING EXTENDED CARE FOR TODAY.

Thank you, Deb
