Snow Day January 13th, 2016

The busses were cancelled again today.  Our Snow Day Open Gyms are running from 11am to noon (in our Kinder Open Gym time slot) and 1 pm to 2 pm today.  Come out and burn off some energy.  A note, the snow plow likes to fill up the end of our driveway, so you might have to take a run at it, but that's better than having Mackenzie full of snowdrifts!
