Dear Parents,

I neglected to thank so many of you for your thoughtfulness during Teacher Appreciation Week! Whether it was something fun each day of the week or special cards and gift cards, your kindness touched my heart! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making last week special!

The coming week will be filled with end of the year activities such as the math challenge reward, step up, wax museum, convocation, Kindy 500, and much more! Our final full week of school promises to be very busy!! Hopefully we'll have some nice weather, so we can get outside for some of our time!

Have a wonderful weekend and a great week ahead!!

Mrs. Allen

  • Third grade will "Step Up" to 4th grade on Thursday and have an opportunity to meet with the 4th grade teachers. Students will NOT be assigned to their classes until later in the summer, but this will be a sort of meet-and-greet time.
