Hey Thunderbirds Welcome Back!!
Hope y’all bundled up and stayed warm on your journey to school today!
It’s like we’re having a real winter out there! Though I’m still having a hard time convincing my boys that shorts are probably not the best clothing option.
I also hope y’all enjoyed the holiday break and spent quality time with your family and friends, gave and received awesome gifts, and ate loads of delicious foods!
I know it can be rough getting back into the swing of things after a big break but we are here in a fresh new year (isn’t it fun to write 2018 now?) and ready to get started!

Upcoming Dates & Reminders
Ice Cream Social/Meet Your Teacher
Time: 3:30 pm-5:30 pm
Annual Back-to-School Ice Cream Social: Find classroom assignments and meet your teacher at this annual event. Come by any time after 3:30 and stroll through your classroom. The cafeteria will have information about the school available and ice cream/non-allergen icy pops available to cool off from the heat. Please plan on stopping by the cafeteria with your child.
The social is also a great time to bring school supplies to your classroom too! School supplies can be placed in a bag with your child’s name on it. Please do not place your child’s name on individual items/school supplies within the bag. If you cannot make the social, school supplies can be brought in the first week of school. Questions about supplies can also be posed to teachers at the social or during the first week of school as well, and purchased thereafter.
