Please send in a labeled Red Shirt for the Ceremony. If they do not have a RA red shirt, please feel free to send in any red shirt. Please make sure it is labeled.

  • I have been getting a lot of emails about the last day of school and students leaving. Most students leave with their parents after the red shirt ceremony, however this is not a requirement. The rest of the day we normally end up cleaning up around the room and having a relaxing day :) Your child will not miss anything if they leave though!
