Monday AM Notes, Feb 12

School-wide theme: Kindness and Compassion

Hello all you fine people!
What a great week it was last week with Camp Amity and the kick-off of the Variety Show! I know rehearsals can be a bit hectic, but the pay off is so grand! Thanks for all the upcoming extra work on getting the kiddos ready to shine!

Patti update: Patti and Jeff are settling in to routines at home and Jeff is showing good signs of recovery, albeit slowly at times. It looks like it could be a few more weeks before Patti returns to work, and I’m encouraging her to take all the time she needs.

A few notes to get you going:
