Please keep your child’s 8th grade buddy in prayer, as some of them will be confirmed on Sunday.
If your child wears boots to school, they need to have school shoes in their backpack to change into. If you’d like to leave their shoes in school during the snowy days, please send them in a plastic bag with their name on and we can hand them on their hook.
Reminder: If your child , either boy or girl , is wearing blue slacks and white shirt/blouse, they should be wearing the red/blue DI zip up sweatshirt, DI red sweatshirt or red v neck sweater. Girls may wear the red DI cardigan also. The girls wearing their jumpers need to be wearing tights or knee high socks-no leggings are being allowed any longer.
Please dress your child for the weather. We do go outside at lunch on most days. Lately I’ve been seeing some of our children wearing only a sweatshirt and no heavier coat. It gets cold out there especially after 15-20 mins.
