Spring Art Show!
Our Elementary Spring Art Show is on Thursday, May 25. Heidi is hanging the art show the day of the event from 9:45-12:00. If any parents would like to lend a hand anytime during that time, please RSVP via email: heidi.kohler@journeysschool.org.

Sunscreen and Layers
Hooray! We are finally ready to recommend applying sunscreen in the mornings and dressing in layers for our cool mornings and warm afternoons. Now that students are back on the hill, doing a tick check at home at the end of the day is also recommended.

ERB Week for 3-5 Grade Students - SNACKS?
