In room 34

Dear Parents and Students of Room 34




I just wanted to reach out and let you know how excited I am to be returning to the classroom this Wednesday February 12th! While I have wholeheartedly enjoyed this special time with my son, I am equally excited to return to room 34.


Mrs. Schmucker has told me many wonderful things about all of the students and families. I am very eager to spend my days getting to know each of you! We are going to have a great remainder of the school year filled with fun new challenges and successes! So let's get this show on the road!

The Museum of Making Music Wed. Feb. 12th

Wednesday we have our field trip to the Museum of Making Music. Please remember to send a snack with your student that includes water. We will return to school by 12:30, therefor, the children will be able to eat lunch at school. Our afternoon will be filled with typical instructional time.



If you are a parent who has signed up to volunteer on this field trip please email me so that I may forward you the details and directions for this event. If you would like to ride the bus you may. But if you would prefer a more calm and quiet experience you may follow the bus, or meet us at the museum.
