News from Room 22 - November 7, 2014

A Huge Thank You

I would like to thank Tanya Fortuna and Andi Carrano for planning a fantastic Halloween party for our class. The activities were so fun for the children and the pictures in the frames were adorable. I'd also like to thank the parents who helped with the stations in the classroom. This kind of fun stuff just can't happen without wonderful parents like we have in Room 22.
