THIS WEEK IN 2ND GRADE

Dear Parents,


Welcome back! We hope you had a wonderful week with your family! We want to start by thanking you for your patience and understanding the week before break in regards to Mrs. Swanson's health. She was in the hospital for three days, where the doctors ran many test including MRI's and a lumbar puncture to try and figure out what was going on. Luckily all the test came back negative, she was able to manage her symptoms with medication, and rest. Now she is feeling 100% better and so excited to be back with the students. Boy, did she miss them!


We have a great three weeks ahead of us before we break again for our winter holidays! Lets get the show on the road!


Sincerely,

Mrs. Khattar & Mrs. Swanson
