Weekly Scoop for Feb. 1, 2016

REMINDER: The PTA Information Session will be held Tuesday, Feb. 2.

A quick reminder to shovel your sidewalks within 24 hours of a snowstorm. (It’s the law!) Let’s work together to keep our children safe as they walk to school. If you have a neighbor who needs help shoveling their sidewalk, you can role model community service to your kids and bring them along to help out.
