with cotton crew-height socks underneath, is ideal) and boots
(rain or snow boots are fine).
We have disposable hand warmers
that can be put into gloves or boots!
(Miss Barb will be using those on cold days.)
Just ask about them if we forget to offer them.

have clothing like that, please just ask about

IF YOUR STUDENT "WON'T WEAR" WHAT YOU THINK THEY SHOULD,
DON'T BRING THEM.
