Holidays include Teacher Workdays, Winter Break and Spring Break among others.  Holidays usually includes a field trip (weather permitting) and planned activities throughout the day.  Your daughter should bring a water bottle and bagged lunch that does not require heating or refrigeration.  We also recommend that she wear sneakers each day. Sign-Up is Required!

In order to ensure that we are adequately staffed and prepared – you must sign-up for each holiday you would like for your daughter to attend.  Registration dates and deadlines are available below.   Your daughter will be unable to participate if you do not complete a holiday registration form by the respective deadline for each holiday period.
