Mrs. Moryl’s speech friends are learning about Speech Anatomy! Today we learned that our lungs bring air in and out of our body when we breathe and speak. We also learned that in our voice box, our vocal folds come together and vibrate to make our voice so that we can speak! Great job modeling Gianna and Addison!

Tuesday, November 30 through Friday, December 3 are 1/2 days of school for elementary students due to Parent-Teacher Conferences. Students in grades k-5 will only attend school in the morning.
The elementary school day begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 3:25 p.m. Students may begin entering the building at 9:00 am. Please send a note to school if you will be picking your child up early, or if they normally ride school transportation but you will be picking them up at dismissal. You will be asked to present identification when picking up your child.
Children are going outside daily for recess if the temperature is 20 degrees or warmer. Please make sure your student is prepared for the cooler temperatures with a coat, hat, and mittens (as needed).
Please know that we will work as quickly as possible today in hopes that this issue is resolved and that we can all continue our work together to keep our students and staff healthy and moving forward.
