February 1-5, 2016
I hope that everyone has had a restful weekend! It was great seeing everyone that was able to attend the Read A Thon Class Party at The Gym at Peachtree. We had a blast! I would like to thank the Cavanaugh Family for facilitating all of our Read A Thon activities! Please review the following updates for this week.
