Good Afternoon Walnut Ridge Families,

 

Can you believe it is almost March!?! Here are some exciting announcements to take us through the rest of the winter and into the spring!

 

1) Pretzel and Cinnabon orders

 

As you know, the fundraising orders arrived incomplete last week and did not include the Cinnabon baking kits. We expect the rest of the order to arrive today so please plan to stop by tomorrow to pick up the remainder of your order.

 

 

2) Ski Trip to The National Winter Activity Center

 

Our field trip to the NWAC to learn to cross country ski is this Friday, March 1. The students will be fitted for their boots and skis tomorrow. Just a reminder to please have your child(ren) arrive to school on Friday already dressed for the ski trip. The forecast as of now looks like partly sunny and 42 degrees with no wind. (I’ll take it). It is important to note that the students will be very active while skiing so please keep that in mind when dressing them. They will want to be warm, but not overly bundled.

For example, Monday March 4th students and staff will be wearing shirts with letters on them and reading Dr. Seuss’s ABCs book.
