  • No Outside Balls
    Posted 10/10/2017

    Starting on October 10th, students will not be allowed to bring any soccer balls, basketballs, hand balls, footballs, etc. from home. There have been several arguments due to students wanting to control and exclude other students. Balls will be provided by the school to the children and we expect to see more collaborative play. We appreciate your collaboration. Thank you.
