Dear Families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend and got to enjoy the last official weekend of summer … even though it doesn’t seem like we even had summer this year!   We are six days into the school year and all is going well!   Everyone has adjusted back into the swing of things and I’m pretty sure we are all exhausted after this 4 day week!  I’m really glad we ease into the school year!

In the next couple of weeks we will be conducting our first fire drill and lock down drill of the year.   We hope we never have to actually experience these events but we must always be prepared.    We will practice these drills as well as other drills throughout the year.  This fall we are also planning an off campus evacuation drill.  For this we will all walk over to the Mason Congregational Church.  This would be where we would go if for some reason we couldn’t return to the building.

Miss Leel’s class has adopted a 5th grade class in Texas and they are collecting school supplies and snacks for the students.   They have also been busy writing notes of encouragement to the students as well.  I am so proud of the compassion that our students are showing for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.  They will be mailing out a care package with the notes and supplies on September 11th if you would like to donate please send in your donations by Monday the 11th.
