Dear North Plains Families,
I know many of you are excited about our new gym and parent drop off/pick up area; I know I am! Here is a link to the staging plan with some dates attached. Since work on the gym will begin late Feb., we'll need to figure out some alternatives for recesses - more on that to come! Here is a link to the staging plan for your information: bit.ly/2Ru7Na2
The end of the 1st semester is coming up on Thursday, Jan. 30. Teachers will need Friday the 31st to do grades, and also have Monday, Feb. 3 to prep for the new semester so there is no school on those days.
On Jan. 21 we will begin lessons from the new Comprehensive Sexual Health Curriculum. Schedules went out this week to families so please check your student's backpack! Many of you are asking to see the later lessons that are from the Second Steps: Child Protection Unit and address the Erin's Law requirements. If you would like to look at these materials, I will have them in our library next Wed., Jan. 29, from 2-4 PM. Feel free to drop by and take a look.

Do you have an old laptop computer you no longer need? If you do, I would love to have it to take with me to Uganda this summer. I'll be going back to Village of Hope, Uganda, in July to support the staff and students in both Bwayle and Bobi villages. Technology is limited, and I'm hoping to bring at least two laptops, one for each doctor's office in each village.
Enjoy your week!
