Florence Update

November 20, 2015

Dear Florence Families,

It was a wonderful week at Florence! Our second graders performed a wonderful program on Monday evening, our fourth graders enjoyed the Sky Ranch experience, and our Kinders presented and enjoyed a fantastic Thanksgiving celebration. Throw in the small tornado and it was a busy and very exciting week!!

We hope you all have a great Fall Break with friends and family!
