we didn’t have to worry about all this other stuff.’’

Principal's Message

October 17, 2014   

Dear Johnson Families,

I hope everyone had a great week and is looking forward to a great weekend. This past week we conducted a PM fire drill and held our monthly Safety Team Meeting to discuss ways to keep the building safe and secure, as well as how to encourage good citizenship in the building. Thank you to everyone who came out for the first PTO meeting of the year. We had an excellent turn-out and some wonderful ideas were generated.

Thursday, October 31st, will be our Halloween Parade starting promptly at 10AM. The parade will begin with students exiting the kindergarten wing doors and proceeding past the main entrance, around the building to the bus loop and along the sidewalk. Students will re-enter the building through the 2nd/3rd grade wing door. Cones will be set up to mark the parade route. Visitors are encouraged to stand on either side of the cones creating a walkway for the students. A few important tips:
