Please support the Kevin Dowling Toy Drive and send in new unwrapped toys or donations to your child’s homeroom by tomorrow.  The class who brings in the most gifts will receive a pizza party. The winner will be announced the week of December 11th. Thank you!


As the weather turns colder, please remember that outdoor recess is held daily unless it is raining, snowing or the “feels like” temperature is below twenty degrees. Please send cold-weather gear (hats, scarves, and gloves) with your children so that students are prepared for outdoor play.    


White or black tights are permitted, but slacks, sweatpants, leggings, and flannel pants may not be worn under a uniform skirt or jumper during class hours. Students are welcome to wear sweatpants, leggings or flannel pants under their skirt or jumper during recess.
