Dear Parents, Families, and Guardians,

Happy Weekend! Enjoy the extra time in the beautiful weather with your children!


Notes and Reminders


No School on Monday, May 28 for the Memorial Day Holiday


***Boys and Girls Club Closed May 28 – June 1*** Please make arrangements to have your children picked up at Cornerstone by 4:00 p.m. Thank you!


Willow Tree Expert? We have a donation of a beautiful little willow tree that might be a wonderful addition to our swampy “over-flow” area near the marsh. We need an expert, though, to look into the best place to plant it because there are certain expectations for growing space, etc. Please let me know if you are willing and able to support this project.


Summer Meals for Children! Please click here for the details!


Water Bottles and Sun Block!

Please have your children or help your children apply sunblock before they come to school. We will support children in reapplying as needed. Also, we encourage all elementary children to bring a water bottle to school; it can be as simple as a washed out and recycled juice bottle with your child’s name. Thank you for helping us keep your children safe and healthy in the warm weather!
