Notes from Malinda
Have you ever wanted to teach another grade level? Are you brave enough to "Try Everything?" If so, November 13th is your day...are you ready for it? For teachers who are interested, we are going to switch classrooms from 8:30-2:30. You will follow the other class plans and gain lots of great information. To top it off, you will get to meet lots more Raccoons. If you are interested, please sign up on the door to Mrs. Stewart's office by October 31st.
