As we begin Winter Break, we should also be preparing for the Winter Weather Storm coming this week. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning in effect from Thursday (12/22) through Saturday. This warning includes below-freezing temperatures, dangerous winds, and snow. While our students will be away on break, we are still thinking about their safety. Here are some safety tips for playing in the snow over break AFTER the storm has passed. We wish you all a safe and relaxing holiday season. We look forward to seeing the kids back in 2023.

Just a reminder, Riddle Elementary is hosting their 2nd annual Penguin Patch Holiday Shop next week! Students will be secretly shopping for family and friends DURING the school day with their teachers. It is a great excuse to encourage your child to earn their shopping money by doing some chores at home. Here are a few ideas on how they can earn money to shop: Make their bed, help bring in the groceries, help a sibling with a project, feed the dog or assist grandparents with chores. #MCUSD2 #Mattoon #RiddleElementary
