Happy Valentine's Day

There were a lot of crafts, candy, and fun this afternoon at Bauer. Our children had a wonderful time celebrating Valentine's Day and we had many families join us!

A special thanks goes out to all the parents who spent much time and energy to make the parties such a success.

Enjoy some snowy recess and Valentine pictures!

Keeping everyone healthy!

It is that time of year again when the different illnesses are spreading through the schools.   Some symptoms to watch for are: chills/fever, headaches, skin eruption, runny nose, cough, vomiting, diarrhea, and a sore throat.  When your child shows signs of illness (especially fever, vomiting, diarrhea) it is important to keep him/her home from school for at least 24 hours with no symptoms present.  Please notify the school of the nature of your child's illness. 

We appreciate all your help with trying to keep everyone healthy!
