Hi Parents,

Here are the updates for this week and a glance at the following week too! Only three more weeks left!

Virtue of the Week: ENTHUSIASM

Thank you for your patience with School Messenger and the Safe Arrival system. I think all the kinks are worked out now. I just want parents to know that this was a District initiative and really had nothing to do with Mrs. Decker or myself. I know some parents were extremely frustrated, but I want you to know that it was out of Bev or my hands. My thanks to all of you that were so patient and kind when you called in.

Please return any JUNIPER RIDGE JERSEYS you find in closets or drawers!

Please start to check the LOST AND FOUND! OH MY THERE ARE SO MANY HOODIES!  A reminder that after June 29th we send out all of this clothing to those in need.

The Book Fair was a huge sucess thank you for your support! We also appreciate the donations you gave for People in Motion this past week.
