Winter Party


Thank you again to everyone who helped make our Winter Party a success!! The kids had an amazing day. Mr. and Mrs. Weseman even reinforced the skills we had been working on prior to the break (mixtures & solutions, multiplication and division). It was so much fun working through these activities.
