Weekly Update | Feb. 15, 2017


This week in review:
Our bake sale was a huge success! A big thank you for all of the bake goods!  The children were very excited to see all of the goodies and had a lot of difficulty choosing a special one as they all looked delicious!  Once the money is all counted, we will let you know how much was raised for the new playground. Thank you again for your generosity and participation!

Please remember that there is no school tomorrow, Friday (Teachers’ Convention) or Monday (Family Day) and the office will be closed on these days. Seeds of Spice will remain open on Thursday and Friday but will be closed on Monday. Regular classes will resume on Tuesday, February 21st. Have a fabulous extra-long weekend!
