*Homework for December logs are due. Please turn it in asap
*Because of the weather , please make sure your child is appropriate attire. Allow them to put their clothes on and zip up independently. This may take long and frustrating for parents that we want to get done quick-but trust me it is worthwhile later. Practice tying shoe laces also.
