Head Start families: Head Start stands firm on celebrating our seasons and not focusing on holidays that some families choose not to observe. On Monday, we will celebrate the characters that make us laugh and smile by wearing clothing (t-shirts, pajamas) that highlight their favorite character. No costumes will be allowed and please keep all accessories at home (crowns, wands, swords, masks, etc.). We look forward to a day of fun and continued learning for our children!
