Dear Young Families,

We had a full week. Students participated in Hour of Code. First and Second Grade viewed a virtual author talk with author Nate Ball. Students continued practicing their dancing skills during music and pe for the Winter Party.

Next week is the week before winter break. We look forward to our time together.

Teachers and students have many exciting activities planned.

Have a good weekend.
