We will be holding Parent-Teacher conferences next week. Sign-up sheets are with your classroom teacher.

Life Cubby!
We just wanted to let you know that we are all becoming quite comfortable with Life Cubby and you should all be seeing updates from your child's classrooms.

There are been a few questions about sign in and sign out times that are showing up on Life Cubby. If a teacher is with another student or parent, their sign in and sign out time may differ slightly from the time that you actually drop off or pick up. This variation in time will NOT result in your account being billed, so please do not worry.

We should have most of the kinks were out with this new system in the next week or so. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to see Mrs. Jacobson.
