Just a quick reminder that Grandparents/Grandfriends Day Breakfast forms are due back at school tomorrow. It would be ideal that money is included when you return the form, but money can also be paid on that day if needed. You will just stop at the table and pay. For a Grandparent/Grandfriend to be able to eat with their student, a form must be turned in tomorrow so we have an accurate headcount for food preparation. The come and go Grandparents/Grandfriends Breakfast for Grades 3-5 will be September 15th from 7:30-8:30, and Grades K-2 will be September 16th from 7:30-8:30. If you have any questions please contact the DES Office at 860-946-4651.
