When the 2017-2018 school year started, we had to sadly announce that microwaves and the breakfast program would be unavailable due to improper equipment. As a result, we reached out to the school community for help to raise money to purchase proper commercial equipment. We were overwhelmed by the generosity shown, and I am happy to be writing this message to let you know that we now have 5 microwaves and 2 toasters. These items would not have been available if it wasn't for the generous donations put forth by the following:
Diane Godfrey's K-2 afternoon bus run is running a bit longer then in past years, therefore, students in grades 3-8 are being picked up at the school later then usual. This delay is about 15 minutes. If your child or children travel home after school on Diane's bus (#294), please expect them to be dropped off later then in the past.
We will no longer be able to have microwaves available for student use due to a notice received from the Fire Marshall. This regulation states that, "Household applicances are clearly marked for 'Household Residential Use Only' and includes kettles, toasters, coffee makers, etc. Such appliances are not permitted to be used in other type of occupancies including hospitals, nursing homes, special care homes, and schools."
Just a note that the school supply lists for grades 4/5 and grades 6/7/8 have been added under the document tab. We apologize for not having this uploaded sooner! These lists are also available at Staples.
We would like to congratulate Maddy for an excellent job forecasting the weather at 95.9 Sun FM with Paddy and Darcy today! Her classmates in Miss. Hitchman's class were able to hear her on the radio and are very excited for her! Also thank you to 95.9 Sun FM for the cool stickers for the students!
