Happy Birthday, Jennifer Polo! (5/27)

Happy Monday, Wilson Team!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and were able to enjoy our unpredictable weather. My family and I spent the majority of the weekend working on our "never-ending" household projects. This weekend, however, we focused on a kennel for our dog. This basically translates to stacking wood, moving gravel, and pulling weeds. We were unable to finish it, so hopefully we will be able to complete it next weekend,

On another note, I wanted to let you know how awesome it was to see all of your students' work on display at Open House. Each of your classrooms, buzzed with excitement as our kiddos shared their projects, writing, and other 21st Century technology skills with their families. It was abundantly clear that a lot of thought, time, and energy went into preparing for this evening and I want you to know how much I appreciate it. Wilson Teachers ROCK!
