Dear Tireless RES Staff,


KUDOS to STAFF Who "Stepped Up":   Jen for helping out with Gr. 5-6 students that were not skiing so I could help at Ski Runners.  SeƱora for helping with lunch duty on Wed.!Pam for attending the PBIS Meeting! Important Items to Know:
Ski Runners - You would have been so proud of the  students on Friday at Ski Runners.  Their courage and joy abounded!  We got there a little late last week, so this week we want to make sure students are packed up BEFORE they go to recess.  Lunch will run as normal.  The option of indoor recess for those who are skiing will apply on Friday as well.
