Snow Gear! 1/1/2013

I wanted to send a quick reminder to all families that the students will go outside each day for recess even when there is snow on the ground. Please send your child to school with proper snow gear including gloves, hat, snow pants and boots. Please label all items so when they are misplaced they can be returned to the proper owner! Please send an additional pair of shoes so we can keep the wet traffic to a minimum. Thanks for your help ensuring that all of our students get outside to enjoy some fresh air.
