This Wednesday is Crazy Socks Day; students may wear “crazy” socks with their uniforms. Friday is a full day. Reminder:  In N Out and Dip N Dots are coming to campus on April 7th, and you need to sign up for lunches and dessert by April 4th. Yes, it is a Friday, but remember that they also make delicious grilled cheese sandwiches if you don’t want to eat meat. On that same day we will be going on a field trip with first grade to the Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard; we will be back on campus at noon, so we will NOT miss out on lunch!
