December Update from Dr. Wallace

Challenger Families,

It was so good to see all the kids returning this morning. I swear they have all grown taller in just a week. I hope you all had a restful and happy Thanksgiving break. We are now heading into a busy and learning-filled December with every day packed with new information and time to show off how much we've grown our brains this first semester.

We look forward to you joining us for the PTA meeting later this week. There will be lots of singing and perhaps a special visitor.

Water Bottles & Face Masks & Lost and Found

Please remember our drinking fountains are closed except for the water bottle fillers. Please make sure your student has water to drink by sending them with a water bottle.

Everyone is required to wear a face mask every day. Please make sure your child has a mask with them before dropping them off in the morning.

Our pile of sweatshirts, sweaters, and coats has grown with the changes in daily temperature. Please remind your child to look for lost items. Please put your name on coats, lunch boxes and other items to have them returned more easily.
