JISP Reminders:

With no school on Monday, January 20th & Tuesday, January 21st, a reminder that the day we return to school will be a JISP day. 

This week, Wild Wings was closed for cross country skiing, so Sally and Sara took the kids on a hike around Windham and then made soft pretzels and had warm pretzels and hot tea to eat after the hike.
