Happy New Year 2017, Shark Families!!! Welcome back, and we hope that you all had a safe and relaxing holiday break. We are now beginning the second semester of the school year, but we need to take a moment to say a big THANK YOU to many people:
Thank you to all our families that donated hats, scarves, gloves, and coats! With your help, we were able to collect over 200 items and make a big difference in the lives of many of our Southbury families.
We would like to so thanks to our HSO and parents who volunteered to make our Winter holiday parties such a success. The children had TONS of fun, and this wouldn’t have been possible without all of you. Thank you!
Before the holiday season, we had our second Shark Fest in order to celebrate good choices and behavior with our children…and it was so much fun!! Please be sure to talk with your child(ren) regarding Character Counts!, especially since we will be experiencing a lot of cold weather and will not be able to go outside every day for recess. We appreciate your support!
