Welcome Back

Earnest and I hope that you had a wonderful fall break. We certainly did, but are now ready to get back and finish up this 9 weeks before the end of this semester and our Christmas break. . . .just 3 weeks away!

Kindergarten Bake Sale

Please don't forget to support our classroom Bake Sale. Each item is $.50 and all proceeds go directly back to our classroom. Currently, we are hoping to raise enough money to buy Osmo for our iPads.

We are in need of snack donations if you would like to send in pre-packaged baked items.
