Dear Families,

Snow....again? That is what the children said when we told them to expect snow! They are experiencing one of the "snowiest" Winters. We know Spring is around the corner....

Next week, the students will bring home their boots, hats, mittens, snowpants, etc. We are hoping that Spring Break will bring us sunshine ONLY! The Lost and Found Table will be packed up on Tuesday, March 21st. Stop by if you are missing something.

The Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA's) are around the corner for Grades 3 - 5. We will start these after Spring Break. Please see the rest of the newsletter for more details.

It is going to be a great last part of March!
