Dear Parent or Guardian,


February is I love to read month and on Friday March 1st we will wrap the month by having what is called Muffins in March.   We are inviting parents to enjoy breakfast with your child from 7:45-8:30 AM.  After breakfast we'd like you to come to your child's classroom to have them read and show what they have learned so far.  There is no cost for the breakfast.  If you are unable to come, it is okay for relatives or other special people in your child's life to come in.  We are very proud of our students, hope to see you on Friday March 1st from 7:45-8:30, please park in the elementary parking lot.
