Chehalem Elementary Newsletter- December 18, 2020
This is the last newsletter of 2020. Let's hope we can all be back together in real life in 2021. I have heard that teachers have been moved up on the priority list for getting the Covid vaccine, so hopefully that will speed things along.
Wishing you a relaxing and fun winter break. Happy New Year!
Stay healthy and well!
Sincerely, Angee Silliman
