End of Year Picnic!

Dear Parents,

We have almost made it to the end of the year! As a final celebration, we would like to have a picnic with our buddy class! This will be the final time we get together and have fun before the next school year. Since we are having a picnic, please send your child with a sack lunch on Wednesday May 4, 2016! We will have lunch and treat outside, along with a fun activity! Thank you for your continued support this year!
