Weekly Update (12/3/18)

****  Please note that we will be going outside for recess when the temperature is 20 degrees or higher (with the wind chill).  Please dress your child for the weather.  Students will NOT be allowed off the blacktop to play in the snow unless they have boots and snow pants.  This is to prevent students from sitting in wet pant or socks all afternoon and getting sick.  They can also use polyester athletic pants to go over their jeans.  

I would also like to congratulate the following students for being recognized as Holden Scholars for the month of November.  Students we selected for demonstrating the following characteristics; inquiry, risk taking, problem solving, collaborating, communicating,and questioning.
