Hi Parents,

Please find below the reminders for this coming week and a glance at the following as well for your planning.


1. Just a note that we would ask parents to come down Walkem Road and into our Drop Off Zone and parking lot with slow speed. As of late, there have been complaints about the speed as to which parents are driving. Thanks in the name of safety of our kids.
