From the Principal
I wish you a wonderful winter break full of joy with family and friends. As you plan for the weeks ahead, you might be looking for new books to share with your child. Winter is a great time for a cozy family read aloud, and children of all ages benefit from time to think and talk about books together. Check out this list for some ideas. You may also want to check out Pajama Storytime on Wednesday evenings at the San Carlos library. Happy reading!
Here are a few reminders for your calendar:
- School will be closed December 21 – January 7
- School resumes on Monday, January 8
- School is closed on January 15 in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
- Report cards will be sent home on Friday, January 26th
I look forward to welcoming students and families back to campus in 2018!
Allison Liner, Principal
