Dear Parents,

It certainly appears that the snow has waited for the second half of winter. With that said, please remember to send your child in with the appropriate clothing for outdoor recess. When we go out, if students want to play in the snow they need to be wearing boots, snow pants, a jacket ,hat and gloves. Should a student not be wearing snow pants, he or she will not be allowed to go in the snow. Along the same lines, we are in the process of placing students for outdoor activities. We are still missing some students forms. If you have not completed your child’s form for outdoor activities please do so as soon as possible as many of the activities have filled up or are close to capacity.

We have received shipment of our Chromebooks. At this point in time Mr. Michaud and Mrs. Murray (technology department) are hard at work getting them ready for students. We chose to go with the Asus Chromebook. Should you have any questions about the machine, feel free to contact us or you can see the specifications and functionality here: http://www.asus.com/us/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/ASUS_Chromebook_C200/

Should you have any other questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or any of us.
