In honor of the birthday of Dr. Seuss, we ask your children to Seuss-ify themselves the week of March 5th to 9th!
- "One Fish, Two Fish" Monday: have your child wear something red and/or blue.
- "Fox in Sox" Tuesday: have your child roll up their pants to show off cool socks.
- "Wacky Wednesday": have your child wear wacky clothes (mis-matched socks, mismatched shoes, or wear clothes backwards or inside out).
- "Green Eggs & Ham" Thursday: have your child wear something green. 
- "Hop on Pop" Friday: celebrate reading by wearing comfy clothes or pajamas to school.  Be sure to have your child bring their favorite book for a day of reading!

Claim Lost & Found Items by Tuesday March 6th! 
All February Lost and Found items will be removed at the end of the day on Tuesday, 3/6.  Please take time to come look for items before then.  Weather permitting, the Lost and Found will be on the blacktop for parents and students to look through.  Thank you.
