Thank you!

Happy New Year! I hope that everyone had a great holiday season! I flew to Texas and spent a lot of time with my family. It was a nice and restful break. I only went to school twice to work in our classroom! ;-)

I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for spoiling me with holiday cards, presents, and gift cards. I am beyond thankful for your generosity. Most importantly, I am thankful for your support!

We are having a GREAT first day back to school! As I reflect over the first semester, I am so proud of what our class has accomplished! I am excited about our 2nd semester of 5th grade!

Upcoming Events:

Jan. 11th-Report Cards
Jan. 15th-No School (MLK Jr. Day)

Jan. 29, 30-BizTown!!

BizTown Volunteers

Due to so many parent volunteers, we had a lottery where names were picked by Dr. King to choose who will attend the field trip. If you were chosen as a volunteer, your name and email have been submitted to BizTown. You should have received an email from them concerning training this week. If you have not received an email from BizTown, you are on the alternate list; please stay tuned because we might need you as a back up. Thank you all for volunteering your time for this great experience!
