Happy Monday, Wilson Team!

I hope you had a nice weekend and were able to enjoy the cool spring weather! The Allen Household was lively as we had a house full of teenage girls for most of the weekend! And yes, my husband did survive (even with a few boy visitors on Saturday)! LOL!

On another note, I wanted to let you know how exciting it has been hearing about the fantastic learning that has been happening in your classrooms! I have been a little "tied up" with a couple of kiddos lately, so it has been wonderful hearing about the powerful lessons I have been unable to see in action! Please keep the good news coming as we have 40 days to make a difference in the lives of our kiddos!

Keep up the phenomenal job!

Here are a couple of reminders for this week:

  • Minimum Day, Wednesday, 4/13 @ 2:00 PM
-Focus: Grade Level Meeting (Narrowing our focus for the next 2 weeks)

  • Flag Assembly for 3rd grade, Thursday, 4/14 (Beginning @ 9:00 AM)
-They will rotate to each 3rd grade classroom
