Friday Update: September 23, 2016

Over the last three years Mrs. Schmoyer (Hereford parent and Teaching Assistant) and her Girl Scout troop have participated in a program called Pinwheels for Peace.  Each of the girls made a pinwheel to be "planted" at their school to bring attention to peace, primarily in our everyday lives.  They planted them at Hereford and Marlborough, as well as a few locations around town.  

International Peace Day was Wednesday, September 21st.

Bus Safety Reminders

On Friday, September 9th, Mr. Fries and Mrs. Zavadel met with each grade level to review our bus safety expectations in the "Safe, Respectful & Responsible" framework.  These expectations were developed in collaboration with our amazing bus drivers.  These rules will be reviewed periodically in the classroom by your child's homeroom teacher.

Please review these expectations (found at this link) at home with your child!
