Good afternoon everyone!
I hope you had a wonderful day!
Please note we have changed our morning routine. As of 8:25 AM, I will be picking up students from the gym and bringing them back to our room until 8:40, at which point we will begin to make our way down to the auditorium for announcements. Any students arriving before then must go directly to the gym to be signed in to Before Care until I pick them up at 8:25. Students being dropped off between 8:25 and 8:40 can remain in the classroom until we head to announcements. Thank you for your cooperation.
