Thurs Nov 23:  School Photos!  12:35pm
Order forms will go home this week.  We will be taking both class and individual photos.  Please make sure your child wears the UAS collared shirt.  We take our photos after lunch, so if you want to send a second, clean shirt with your child for photos, that might be a good idea.  Additionally, if you want to send a hairbrush or comb, I will help them fix their hair.

Thank you!
