Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome spring!  In the up-coming weeks the weather will be getting warmer and we will be out on the playground everyday as the weather permits.  National Playground Safety Week will be the week of April 23rd through the 27th.  As always, safe play is our primary goal on our playground.  "Safety First" is "Safety Always."  ~Charles M. Hayes
