PICNIC FOR THE PLANET - Frostwood's Annual Earth Day Celebration- "Picnic for the Planet" will be held on Friday April 21st, during your student's lunch period. Children will picnic on the grass outside.  Students buying lunch will be given a brown bag lunch. If you are packing lunch, please make it as "trash free" as possible in the spirit of Earth Day! For example, a reusable water bottle instead of a juice box, a metal fork instead of a plastic one, sandwich in a reusable container instead of a plastic bag. Your child can bring a blanket or towel to sit on if they wish. 

If you, or another family member, would like to join your student for lunch, please do! Bring a blanket and ensure whoever is coming knows (1) the child's grade, (2) teacher's name and (3) time of lunch.

GREEN TIGERS NEWS - The next Green Tigers meeting is Thursday, April 20th, at 7:15 am, in the library. Frost wood's annual Picnic for the Planet will be during your child's lunch on Friday April 21st.
