Up Up and Away!!!!!

It's a bird. It's a plane. No wait it is just a calendar showing me we have started the first day of August. Summer is flying by and I hope you have taken some time to really relax and enjoy yourself after the wonderful job you did last year. I know that by now he students know who their teachers are going to be and the excitement is brewing in our community about all of the engaging fun and learning that will be occurring this year. If I don't get the chance to see you on Saturday, please enjoy those last rays of sun and we will see you in a few short weeks for your return.
