Change in TK-5th Grade Yearbook Sales



Dear Parents,


Due to the uncertainty of when the school will re-open, we made the difficult decision to cancel in-person sales of the 2019-2020 TK-5th Grade Yearbook.


If you would like a keepsake of some of the fun memories from this school year, please order your yearbook TODAY. There will be no further opportunities to do so after Wednesday, March 25th.


Order your yearbook ($20) online at:


https://www.shop.memorybook.com/school/108594margueritaschool/


We wish everyone good health, and sanity as you "school" your children at home. We're in this together.
