    A MESSAGE FROM OUR PE TEACHER, EMMA VIRDEN - "Next week I'm creating individual P.E kits for students and need them to bring the following items from home. Their kit will stay at school to be used for indoor games when it's too cold or wet to be outside. They will need:
    1. A pair of socks (they don’t have to match) to be used as a ball with beans or rice inside
    2. A plastic cup (any color)
    3. A scarf or bandana
    4. A gallon-sized plastic storage slider bag
    5. A towel (regular size) 
    I also welcome donations of bags of rice or dried beans, and boxes of plastic spoons. These will all be used for our indoor games. Thank you for your help."
