Converse's Team Update, Jan. 15

We are one team, with one mission, to be our best together!

Celebrations and "family/team" updates!!!!

  • Join me in wishing a happy birthday to Jenny Lamkin on Tuesday, Jan. 19th! May her day be filled throughout with beautiful music!
  • Congrats to Elizabeth Bollhoefer who is expecting a baby this coming summer and to Bethany who found out her little one will be a boy!
  • I was also told the mascot didn't "have" to have something added to it before passing it along. Enjoy!
  • Allison Rice began as Teresa Cass' student teacher this week. Please welcome her to the building if you haven't done so already.
