Read-A-Loud Day
Thank you to all the students and parents that participated in Read-A-Loud Day on Tuesday. I also want to thank Ms. Napolitan for coordinating the activities. Students that read or had someone read to them, for 20 - 30 minutes on Tuesday were awarded with an extra recess on Wednesday!

Traffic Congestion
The traffic congestion after school is an increasing concern. Buses are lined up on 104th Street and we find a number of adults crossing between them. We are in the process of establishing an additional crosswalk to accommodate those pedestrians. Please use the crosswalk at all times when crossing the street and remind students to use them also. We need to be role models for our children.
