REMINDERS:
– Please label all lunch box items (cups, spoons forks, containers and lids). Also try to send containers with easy access, correct lids and make sure they are covered properly before packing them in the lunch box.
– We are asking you to discourage Big Bears from bringing toys to school. Sometimes they interfere with class routines and with our SUPERKID program.
