Oh this weather! What a wonderful opportunity for us all to get out to play this weekend. I hope you enjoyed some outside time with your family.
On that note, please remember that our playgrounds are open for you to use. All students need to be actively supervised when they are playing (parents must be able to view them) and we ask that school materials, especially on the PK/K playground are treated with care. We use those items for learning and miss them if they are lost or destroyed after school.
Reminder: This week is a short week for students. No School on Friday! (All staff will be here for a Professional Development day.)

A Note from the ES Art Studios:
Every year in art your students build and create with numerous found objects and recyclable materials. They love building and designing so much we have almost gone through our entire collection of supplies. We need to rebuild our stock for the remaining school year (and beyond) and NEED YOUR HELP!!
We regularly collect the following materials:
Collection boxes for these materials can be found in the ES foyer next to the lost and found and outside of Studio 47 room E 147 on the first floor.
Thank you in advance for your support and donations!
