This week we had a visit from the Cary Fire Department. They taught us how to stay safe in the event of a fire and showed us all the gear they carry on their truck as well as themselves. We have enjoyed learning about Community Helpers this month. We encourage you to think of ways to say thank you to the helpers in your town. Bake some cookies, make a card or just stop by a station to say thanks! Share God’s love with the people in our community that keep us all safe, they will truly appreciate it.

Beginning this Wednesday October 5th, the playground will be closed after school until 2:45 for our After School Program. The playground will be open the other days after school starting at 1:30pm. Please monitor your children so they don’t dump sand anywhere except the sand box and make sure only 2 year olds and younger go into the small playground. Thank you for your consideration of our property.
Please remember Waldo Street is a one way street. Do not come up Waldo Street from Walker Street when trying to park. Use the parking lot or enter from the Academy Street entrance to Waldo. When you drive up the street the wrong way you endanger children and adults, and it is against the law.
Parents keep your hands on your children every time you cross the street to keep them safe.
Have a wonderful weekend.
