  • Red Nose Day! Thursday, May 24th 2018

    Happy #RedNoseDay from Ms. Huey's Class 2-307!

    What’s with the Nose?
    Simple yet powerful, visible and playful,
    the Red Nose has always been a symbol.
    It brings people together, breaks down barriers,
    and reminds us of the power of laughter.

    What happens on Red Nose Day?
    People all across America go Nose to Nose to raise awareness and funds to help children in need.
