Thursday, January 16th

No school Monday

...in recognition of Dr. King's birthday. It is a federal holiday, so child care is not offered.

Save the date for a family roller skating party

The rumors are true!

Gordon has rented out United Skates of America for Sunday, February 9th. We will have the place to ourselves from 5:30-8pm.

This all-ages fun will make for a wonderful outing for the whole family.

Tickets are $10 per person, which includes skate rental, and kids three and under are free.

This event will kick off the new Gordon Giving Week. More on all of this soon! But for now, buy your tickets at www.gordonschool.org/familyskating.
 

Technology, child development and families

The next in this year's parent dialogue series is coming up Tuesday, January 28th at 6:00.

That is sooner than you think.

The last one two of these were wonderful and you should not miss this one.

Gordon’s Health and Wellness Director and Gordon's Technology Director will lead a conversation on technology, child development and families.

Calendar and scheduling survey

Thanks to the one hundred and twenty (!!) people who responded to the survey Lynn Bowman emailed out on Monday.

A note from Nurse Horton

Dear families,

Many children are playing with small, powerful round magnets.

Please do not allow your child to bring these to school. They are easy to drop or misplace, and they can be extremely dangerous if a young child swallows them.

Thank you!
