Whale Watch News September 23, 2019

From the Principal

We are off to a great start. I am excited to see all of our families at Open House on Wednesday, September 25th from 5:30-6:30. We will be serving hot dogs and chips. Our classrooms will be open to see the work our students have been doing.

Thank you for working hard at making our parking lot a safe place. We will be posting new signs in the parent pick up line soon. Stay tuned.

Please let me know if you have any celebrations, needs or concerns.

Thank you,

Mrs. Hietala
