6. In-door lunch season. Parents - the season of in-door lunches is upon us. Cold weather does not prevent the kids from going out, but rain, sleet, snow or ice does. The season unfortunately lasts a while so a few tips for the cold season. 1. Encourage them to bring a book, or a deck of cards or a small game (no electronic games). The kids who have games with them (UNO, mini-chess, cards, other types of small games), are always the happiest as they are in-doors but having fun. Even in the auditorium, kids are playing cards and other games. So, keep it in mind. 2. Please have them dress for cold weather. I can't tell you how many kids try to come to school or go outside in the freezing cold, in a thin sweatshirt. 3. Incredibly lovely scarves, hats, gloves, parka coats, sweatshirts, etc., are already piling up like one couldn't believe. Please encourage your children who are missing a sweatshirt, coat, hat, scarf, to check out the Lost and Found multiple times. Items tend to find their way to the L&F after several days or weeks. So, please encourage them to return. I am constantly out of space and hangers, as the multitude of items are ever coming in from the yard, gym, changing rooms, etc. 

7. Calling for Ronald McDonald Fun Run Pictures. If you did not receive my email, but have photos of this year's Fun Run that you would like to submit for my making of a photo video, please email them to me so I can include. Thanks! - Sheila G.
