Notes from the Teacher

Hello 4F Families,

Students will begin their swimming unit, in P.E., when we return from Spring Break. Our first day of swimming will be on the morning of Wednesday, April 4th from 8:00-8:45 a.m. Please see the Friday Five for additional information regarding swimming. If you are able to volunteer to help out during our swim times, please contact Mr. Holstrom. Your background check must be current and Called to Protect up to date.

Have a wonderful Spring Break!

Mrs. Flint
