Thank you to everyone for a great first week back!  I know that getting back into a routine can be difficult, but I know all of your little friends were so happy to see you!  I hope that everyone enjoys the three-day weekend that is ahead of us.  Be sure to rest up and stay warm!  We have a busy week coming up.  Everyone is going on a field trip, we have MAP assessments for K, and weather that will probably continue to keep us inside.

Next Saturday is the Athletic 'Fun'raiser, the Pajama Jam in the gym.  All faculty and staff are invited and will be given a complimentary ticket.  If parents purchase a ticket to the Pajama Jam before next Thursday, their child will be given an out of uniform pass for Thursday the 18th and will be permitted to wear PJ's to school.  **Preschool teachers who will be on a field trip on Thursday, please instruct any students with 'out of uniform passes' to use them on a different day, due to your field trip.

Thank you all for your continued prayers and support for Cathy and her family, I know it has meant a lot to her to see you all and talk with you.  She will be out for at least another week, please continue to make sure that Eimile has everything she needs for lesson plans for the next week.

Have a great weekend!
