You All Are The Best!

Thank you all SO much for taking time out of your evening to attend Parent Night. We are a team and together we will make this a great year for your child. 

It was a lot of information to cover in such a short amount of time and I know I TALK FAST! So if you have additional questions, shoot me an email and I will be happy to assist you. 

I wish I had more time to talk to each of you individually and tell you what awesome kids you have. So happy to be working with you this year!

Rules Rap!

Hello, family and friends! We have spent a lot of time learning about the rules of the classroom. This will help us all be safe and work well together this year!

Enjoy watching our Rules Rap! This was a fun way for all students to learn the rules, the rules, the rules of the classroom! :)
