Happy Birthday, Carrie W (5/16)

Happy Monday, Wilson Team!

I hope you had an awesome weekend and were able to enjoy the beautiful warm weather! The Allen household was very busy as each of the girls had birthday parties to attend! Needless to say, I spent my weekend playing "taxi driver" for my girls!

On another note, I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your patience and flexibility during CAASPP Testing. I know how hard you have worked this year to ensure implementation of the Common Core Standards while being conscientious of the foundational skills needed to access this material. Our students are extremely lucky to have teachers like you in their court! Keep up the phenomenal job as we only have 19 days left to MAKE a DIFFERENCE!!
