Updates from Mrs. Froning
May 2 2020
On May 1st, some traditions celebrated include dancing around a Maypole decorated with ribbons, honoring the crowning of a May queen or by giving a special basket filled with flowers and treats to some anonymously. In the Wishtree, the book I read aloud to the students during our first two weeks of the closure, the tradition of tying a "wish" ribbon on a tree was shared too.
My wish for all is that we give one another the gift of grace! As you continue to adjust to your new job as "homeschool teachers", remind yourselves you are doing your best and that is ENOUGH!
