During Term 1 and Term 4, students are required to wear their Mentone Park wide-brimmed hat when outside. If a student does not have a hat, they will be required to play in a shaded area, as we do not lend hats. Students may bring sunscreen to school but they must be able to apply it independently.

As the days become colder, please remember that school uniform does not include leggings with school dresses. Please wear pants or the tunic with stockings or socks.

Homework will be due Thursday and new homework will be sent out on Fridays. Please remember to check they are doing their spelling words and reading to a parent nightly.
