Fun Lunch Correction

Posted Jan 12, 2017 | Category: Fun Lunch

PARENTS!

Our apologies…there are some corrections to the fun lunch form that came home or that is coming home this week.

1. There is NO fun lunch on 2/17 so please do not pay for that day. It is a Teacher Institute Day.
2. There is a typo….4/4 should be Friday, 4/7.

Thank you so much for your understanding!
