Dear Parents,

Special Thanks:  We want to thank the moms who offered their time and gifts to help with the Daddy/Daughter dance.  Everyone had a great time.  Thanks so much.

Grandparents’ Day:  Ben Lippen Lower School will celebrate Grandparents’ Day on Friday, March 10th, which is also a half day of school. The morning will begin with grade level presentations at 8:45am and will be followed by classroom visits and refreshments at 9:15 am. A permission slip went home to let us know who your child will be leaving with on Grandparents Day.  We need a permission form for each child.
