Our children have been participating in Jump Rope for Heart in grades K-5 this week. Grades 6-8 are having a fundraiser for the Elle Foundation which is a new organization to benefit congenital heart defects. All donations go directly to research for the treatment of heart defects. All money collected is to be turned in Friday, March 13th to Mr. Ryan or Mrs. Schaad. If students K-5 pool their money and meet their goal of $5000, the school could earn a Wii Game System and everyone could benefit. Individual prizes would not be earned if we did it this way. Let us know what you think.

Spring is fast approaching and there will be many activities that will be happening. Proficiency testing will be the last two weeks in April. We will try to not schedule other events during this time. It is important for your child to be in attendance during the testing. Please try to schedule appointments accordingly.
