  • Halloween will be a fun-filled day in our room. We will celebrate Halloween with fun themed centers and have a special snack at Circle Time. Please remember no costumes at school.
  • No school on Nov 4th for 3 and 4 year olds, as all of the ECE team will be at a CPR/First Aid Training. The kindergartners will work in Ms. Therese’s room and we will have two subs for that day. Please drop off and pick your child through Ms. Therese’s door on that day.
