It’s time to break out the snow pants, boots, hats and gloves! On the days when even the warmest winter gear just won’t cut it, all elementary students will be asked to stay indoors during recess.

Indoor recess will be held when the actual temperature is at zero degrees or below, or the wind chill is -10 degrees or below.

It’s best to assume your child(renwill participate in recess, so please be sure to dress them accordingly.

For the days when recess has to be indoors, we are preparing to offer our students engaging and fun activities in the commons space.

Throughout the month of December, we are looking for new and gently used donations of:


Board Games

Playing cards

Indoor ball toss (softer balls that are safe for indoor play)

Art supplies

Simple puzzles (completed in 15-20 minutes)


Sensory bin items (cool things to squish or feel)

Bean bags/beanies to toss

Markers or crayons



hand held puzzle toys, ex- Rubix cubes

You can drop off your donations in the office for Mrs. Peterson.
