Unless absolutely necessary, please do not leave with your children after their class performs. Thank you in advance for your help in this matter.

After School Program 1-R is looking at the need for an after school program. Initially, the school needs to determine how much interest there would be in a program. If you would like your children to be involved in an after school program, please contact Mrs. Meis at 385-6352 with the following information: your name, phone number and the number of children participating in the program. Look for more information in the days ahead.

On behalf of the staff at 1-R School, we wish you and your family the best of holiday seasons, and as always, if you have questions regarding your children’s education, please do not hesitate to contact me at 385-6352.
