Mr. Sikes is Coming Back!!!

I am so excited to announce that Mr. Sikes will be returning to our room on Thursday! I know the kids have missed him and will be thrilled to have him back. If you would like to send a card or a note for his first day back, I am sure it would make his day. I plan on having the students make a "Welcome Back" banner to hang above our door.

Let's Celebrate Mrs. Stover

I would like to present Mrs. Stover with an appreciation basket on her last day, which will be Wednesday. She has worked very hard this year to meet the needs of our students. She has been a perfect substitute in Mr. Sikes' absence stepping right in and taking on the challenge of our unique school and classroom environment. If you would like to send in a card, note, or gift, I would love to fill a basket for her. I plan on the students working (secretly I hope) on a Google Slides presentation to show her as well. We will have a "Thank You" party at the end of the day on Wednesday including the basket and treats.
