With the nice weather upon us and spring around the corner, the school yard is going to start melting.  With the spring thaw happening the outside will become wet and mucky.  Our hope is that all children benefit from the nice weather, but we also realize that shoes, pants and other items will become wet.  As to not disrupt parents at work or during the school hours we ask that ALL children (kindergarten to grade 8) pack an extra pair of pants and socks in their backpacks and keep them in that backpack until the end of the year.
