Hello!

We had a wonderful field trip today learning about all the great green features at CLC.  The kids really enjoyed the green houses and being able to go on the roof to see the solar panels up close.  Thank you so much to all the parents that joined us and made this trip possible!  Thank you to the lounge angles for lunch this week – it was delicious!  We are looking forward to the Halloween parties on Monday.  Please remember that students should bring their costumes to school and will change before the party.  Therefore, costumes need to be easy to put on and have minimal make up.  Please, no weapons or blood/gore, and masks cannot cover the full face (we need to know who is under there!).  Enjoy your Halloween Weekend!
