Happy Last Week of 4th Grade!

June 12th

Thank You So Much!

I cannot begin to thank you for all the support you've provided to help make this such an amazing year! I truly feel so lucky to have such a fantastic group of 4th graders to teach this year. It means so much to have such supportive, caring families to work alongside to help support and guide these awesome children as they develop into such outstanding leaders. It has been a privilege to be your child's teacher. Wishing you all a happy, healthy and fun summer!
