J.R. Briggs Annual Winter Concert is Thursday, December 13th at 7:00 PM

It sure seems that winter decided to come early and stay. The snow hasn't moved for a while and the temperatures don't seem to be letting up either. So please, make sure your student is coming to school with the appropriate outside clothing like hats, gloves/mittens, boots, and certainly a warm jacket. We do have some extra ones here for a few students that forget their gear, but please make your best effort to send students with proper outerwear.

Boxtops Should Be Turned In Thursday, November 29th To Teachers

Ralph Masiello presented to students from kindergarten to the second grade in the library today. He told stories about how he became an author/illustrator, as well as created one of a kind drawings for many of the classrooms. Students were still talking about his tale called "The Diaper Tree" which might be his next childrens book.
