Family Fun Night

Thank you to all those who were able to join us on Friday for our family fun night! It was wonderful to see everyone together and get to just mingle with you all and have small conversations about all of the wonderful things your children are up to in the classroom!


I'm already planning to have another one at the end of the year to celebrate all of our shared successes in third grade!


Also, a big thanks to those who were able to bring drinks and snacks!
