Summer Packets: If you are interested in a summer learning packet which will help your child practice skills that are important for next year, please contact Mrs. Robbins and she will ensure one gets home with your child the last week of school. We do have packets for incoming Kinders that can go home with an older sibling if requested. The packets are a great way to keep your child learning throughout the summer, we hope you encourage your child to complete it.
