The cold weather has come upon us.  Please label your child’s winter wear, so if it becomes misplaced we can be sure to get it back to them.

School will be closed on Wednesday, November 21st through the 23rd in recognition of the Thanksgiving Holiday.

“Memories with Mom” will be held on November 28th & 29th .   We invite moms or any other female figure in your child’s life to attend a day of school with your student for our annual “Memories with Mom.”  If you are not able to attend this event, please notify your child’s teacher so we can buddy them up with another adult. This year’s theme is Art!  Moms and students will learn how to paint a step-by-step picture with acrylic paints on a stretched canvas. This will be a treasured keepsake for sure! Students in the “Little Explorers” S.T.E.M. program, who attend in the afternoon only, are to arrive at 10:20am to participate in the class with their mom or other female adult.  Little Explorer’s parents, please plan to stay for lunch. If you have any questions, please direct them to your child’s teachers.

We have no school on November 30th.  Osseo School District is off.  

With the oncoming flu and cold season, we would like your help in reducing the spread of viruses by having your child wash their hands before and after school.  Also if you are aware your child is not feeling well, please keep them home.  These precautions will help us all stay healthy.

“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God for you in Jesus Christ”
