*Please apply sunscreen at home and have your child dressed appropriately for the weather.
We would like to send a big thank you to all the parents who have agreed to help with the luncheon by bringing sandwiches, sweets, fruit/veggie trays or donating money. Many hands make light work.
Although it is sad to see our wonderful school close, it is amazing to see everyone come together to celebrate all the happy memories that have been created over the years.
