Sneakers

Now that snow season is here please send your child to school in appropriate snow gear so that they can have fun playing outside. Also, if you would like to have your child leave their sneakers at school so they do not have to bring them back and forth, that is fine. They will definitely need them for Mondays and Thursdays when we have P.E. Thank you!
