March Bulletin – 2012


Under the drizzly February skies, our woods hint of the spring to come. The oso berry bushes are starting to blossom, the salmonberries to unfold their leaves, and the pussy willows to grow furry. March is around the corner!


Please remember that we ask parents to notify the school in writing, by email, or by phone of any absences, whether planned or not. If your child has a planned absence, the longer notice you can give the better. Thanks.
