Big Thank You's

Our class would like to extend our sincere "thank you" to both the Augusta and Myron

families for looking at our wish list and purchasing the much loved pencil sharpeners for our class. They use them whenever they get the chance. Those sharpeners are the best ones on the market by far!

Thank you to Kai's mom for stepping up to be our team captain for the walk-a-thon. The kids all enjoyed this year's event.
