Specials for the Week of January 6- 9th

P.E. will be on Tuesday, and Thursday our first week back from our winter break. Please return your library book on Monday so you can check out another one.
Leonardo Paz is our Star of the Week. We loved seeing his pictures and one of his favorite places to go is Legoland!


Didn't our students do an Amazing job in their holiday program? I am SO proud of my kindergartners. I am so happy so many parents could attend. Thank you also to Mrs. Carter and Mrs. Rogers for organizing our holiday party! We had so much FUN and appreciate all the parents that came to help!! Mrs. Hanagriff and I LOVED our gifts from the class and appreciate lots of our "favorite things"! We wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
