Mrs. Mowbray's Class

We finally had our whole class back together this week and then Hurricane Michael made an appearance and cut our week short. I confess I was glad because my daughter Emma is home on fall break and I got to spend the day with her. Thankfully we didn't get as much rain as anticipated. I'm looking forward to meeting with each of you tomorrow for conferences.
