A Learning Adventure

August 5, 2015

Welcome to the Adventure!

Hello parents! I will be sending you this newsletter periodically to keep you informed of the classroom and school events. As always, please contact me via email at if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank You for Coming to Open House!

For those of you who came to Open House, thank you! It was so nice to meet with you before the school year gets under way. If you were unable to attend, you were greatly missed! Please take the time to fill out this Google Form so that I have the contact information for you. Thank you for your time!

Volunteer Training!

Mrs. Brendle will have the required volunteer training soon. If you would like to volunteer in the classroom you will need to attend volunteer training. (She will have a few more throughout the year but you can't volunteer until you've had the training.) Thanks for helping!
