5/10/2017 Update from Silver Beach

Silver Beach News for 5.10.17

Dear Families,
It is so hard to believe that there are less than 30 days left in the school year! Please note all the upcoming events listed below.  This year we will have a “Fun in the Sun” picnic theme rather than a BBQ.  Our hope is that this change allows more time to  enjoy lunch with your child(ren) rather than waiting in line for something off the grill.  Turkey or veggie subs are available to preorder.  The flyer is coming home and
is attached here.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Nicole
