Family Game Night sponsored by Title One –March 22nd – (time pending)


Come and play some games with us on March 22nd! Let’s learn how you can use those board games and card games around your house to help your child with math, reading, and critical thinking skills. We will also have suggestions on ways you can adapt the games to help your child with something they need to work on – without them even knowing! You might even leave with some ideas for birthday gifts, new favorites, or remember some old favorites collecting dust! We hope to see you there! 






From the School Nurse:

Sleep is a gift we give our bodies.  It is the time for cell and tissue regeneration.  Sleep powers the mind, restores the body, and fortifies virtually every system in the body.


Our school nurse recommends visiting to find out more about children’s sleep needs.
