Kindergarten, first, and second grade will be taking a field trip to Gritt's Farm in Buffalo, WV on October 6th. The price of admission is $10 per child and this includes a small pumpkin for each child. In order for your child to attend, we must have a signed permission slip and his or her money prior to that day. (Even if you are planning to attend, we need your child's money in advance.) All students will ride the bus to Gritt's Farm. Please note that we will be making this trip rain or shine (unless the weather becomes dangerous) and we will be outdoors most of the day, so please dress your child accordingly. Upon arrival, please see your child's teacher if you would like to sign your child out so he/she may explore the farm with you.
Proofs of our Fall school photos will be sent home this Friday. Picture orders are due back on Monday, October 2nd. If you did not pay online, please send payment with your order.
Photo releases will be sent home September 19th. In order to see your child's photos on this site we must have a signed consent form giving us the right to use your child's photo.
