Indoor Slipper Policy

Dear Parents of the Elementary School,

With weather is getting colder, we would like to ask you to please provide a pair of indoor slippers for your child to keep in school. Starting Monday, October 13th, 2014 all students of the Elementary School should have their pair of slippers in the school. Since tying shoelaces is still difficult for some children, please practice this skill at home.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Kind regards,

Monika Rodrigues                                                           Ulrike Schweitzer

Principal of the Elementary School                           Elementary School Counselor
