Dear Capri Families,
As we move into the busy month of December, here are some important things to note:
  1.  Collections for the Holiday Drive end on December 13th . The Drive for Families happens on December 18th  this year.
Thank you to all who have donated this far!
  1.  The last student day in December is the 19th. No school on Friday, December 20.

The article linked below is about the challenges of parenting when our child has a different personality than our own. I find Dr. Brooks, the author, to be most helpful and a wealth of resources. Feel free to read and I always welcome your feedback.
Most sincerely,
Principal Lancon
