Friday Notes

  • Many of the students have been slipping in their memory work lately. We are asking you parents to please spend some time helping your children at home, especially the younger ones. The students will also be encouraged to work a little more diligently at school. Your help is appreciated!
  • There is no school on Monday for President’s Day. If you are looking for something to do with your children that day, consider going to Rep. Diane Loeffler’s Annual President’s Day Capitol Tour. The tours start at 10 am and 11 am. Participants can tour the beautifully restored Minnesota Capitol and learn about the work done there. The event is free and appropriate for all ages.
