Week of December 3rd - 7th

Where Has the Time Gone?

Can you believe that we are just a few short weeks away from Winter break? Our first semester is zipping by and I have LOVED each and every minute with your beautiful darlings! I thought I would begin emailing newsletters to help keep you informed on what is happening in our classroom and on our campus, since we are not doing a weekly newsletter in the take home folder any more. Thanks for you continued support at home!

Peace, Love, and Blessings,

Destine' Grobe

  • I will use this strategy to write well written summaries about the texts I read.
