As both days fall on weekends, we will have Sesame Street Day on Tuesday, November 20th and Mickey Mouse Day on Wednesday, November 21st. For our new parents, our staff will dressing up as these characters and will greet the children entering the building. Once the school day begins, the characters will leave and it will be a regular school day.  Students are invited to wear Sesame Street or Disney-Themed attire on those days. The teachers and staff will participate in this as well.

Just a reminder, there is no school this Monday, November 12th for observance of Veterans’ Day.  Please be advised that Wednesday, November 21st is an 11:45 am dismissal for all students. I wish you all a wonderful weekend and look forward to seeing you in the weeks ahead.
