The Lord protects me from all danger;

I will be out of the office on Friday February 26th. I will be attending the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress.
I have an open door policy. If you have a question, comment or concern please come chat with me. I am getting to know your children and I would love to get to know you as well. I am usually here between 9am and 6:30 pm. I find that parents have a little more time to chat at the end of the day. If you would like to talk in the morning before 9am, just let me know and I can come to school and meet with you.
Thank you for helping us to teach our children to wash their hands before choosing an activity at school. Keep up the good work. And if you are in a hurry when in the morning we will be happy to help your child wash their hands, just let us know. Thanks again.
All classes are in need of paper that can be used for art and drawing. If you have paper from work that is blank on one side, please bring it to your child’s classroom. We would love to help recycle the paper. If you know of another resource for paper, please let me know. We also need paper towel rolls, (the cardboard that is left when you finish the using all the paper towels). We will be doing a group art activity. We will need them by the 10th. Thanks!
Have a wonderful and Blessed month,
