I hope that you all had a great weekend and had a chance to enjoy the beautiful weather!  There are a lot of things going on this week - preschool picture days, which will take place in the Secondary school library and of course, the week ends with the Fun Run!!  Remember, that when you are given the Orange Fun Run shirts, they are NOT to go home.  In Kindergarten, students should be instructed to wear their PE uniform, and then sent to the restroom to change once they arrive at school on Friday.  For Preschool, I would encourage you to ask the parents to change their child into their shirt when they arrive on Friday morning. Also, please make sure you all emphasize the importance of gym shoes.  I have duct tape to pass out to you all, please be sure to place at least one piece of duct tape on every student's shirt (either across the back or on the sleeves, try your best not to cover up a sponsor).  Then, also, please put some duct tape on your shirt and your assistant's shirt, as well.

Kindergarten teachers - please be sure to send Carol the names of your chaperones for your field trip ASAP.

Have a great week!
