During the cold and flu season, it is extremely important that all of us follow proper hand washing techniques. With almost 400 children in the building, it is very easy for germs to spread quickly. If your youngster(s) is sick, please keep them at home until they are well. Please do not share your cold or flu with others.
When a child is sick in the classroom, the custodians do an extra "deep clean" that night. We are all trying to stay healthy until Christmas holidays.
Also popular were the bookmarks, posters and craft books. The school benefits form these sales because Scholastic shares the profit. Which means Richard Bulpitt will be able to buy more books for its Learning Commons.
Last year we also had a book fair in the Spring. It was also well attended. Stay tuned for news on books! Thanks everyone for supporting the book fair!
