Cold enough for ya?

If cabin fever is setting in, never fear! Drop your Field Mouse off at the Rollergarden on January 21 from 4:30-6:30 for a "no-parents-allowed" skating party - a good excuse to get out of the house and do something active!

Have you made any resolutions for the New Year? If your 2017 goals involve getting more involved in the community, please consider being my PTA co-chair for the 2017-2018 school year. It's a great way to get to know other parents and get more involved in your child's school.

We hope you had a restful winter break. Only five more months until summer vacation! Stay warm.
