Florence Family Update

May 4, 2018

Quick Notes

Our campus was showered with appreciation this past week. Your thoughtfulness and generosity is truly a treasure to all the staff at Florence. A special thank you all of our parents who contributed to providing delicious lunches and desserts everyday - Mr. and Mrs. Pillans for making and serving lasagna to our entire staff. Losing weight????? Not here!! We enjoyed every morsel! Our building smelled like a florist with flowers everywhere - beautiful cards - blessings every day!

As we begin to near summer, I encourage you to think of how to engage your students in reading while at home. Mrs. Lallande has volunteered her time to open the library 4 times throughout the summer for you to come in and check out books! Below is an informational chart as to the importance of keeping our kids reading throughout the summer.
