Our Classroom News - October

A Note From Ms. M

I can’t believe we are almost at the end of the 1st quarter. I am blown away by your kiddos growth in the first 9 weeks. We are all growing academically and socially and our class feels more and more like a family everyday. I am looking forward to Fall break and hope everyone enjoys their much earned time off!

Good to Know

Congratulations to Akumu for being selected as Kindergarten's August Student of the Month.
