Thanksgiving Break

Dear all,
 
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families and friends. I am SO thankful for my incredible students. We have had such a great start to the year and I know when we come back we will be ready to finish it out strong!! Happy Thanksgiving!

Wish List

Awesome parents,
 
As you all know, it tis' the season for sickness! :(  I am constantly reminding the students to wash their hands and cover their mouths but unfortunately we have seen many students out due to sickness. Any donations of hand sanitizer or tissues would be GREATLY appreciated. I started out with about 5 bottles and they are all out now. I encourage my students to get some on their way in and out of class so we go through them quickly. 
 
Thank you for being the BEST and most supportive parents!
