*We will ACTUALLY finish our country digital products this week. (2 more to go!)
It was fun to see so many siblings at Kindergarten Round up last week. It looks like we will have another great group starting. The 1A learners saw my pile of name tags and bubbles for the incoming kindergarteners and said, "Oh! This looks cute! What's this for Ms. Thach?!" They were a little crestfallen when I said, "Kindergarten Round up!" I reminded them that most of them got to come when they started kindergarten. What a reminder of how much they have grown up in 2 years!
We will attend the kindergarten musical on Thursday afternoon. I'm sure it will be good ... but not quite as cute as the Barnyard Musical we did in kindergarten!
Friday will be our final Rise and Shine Assembly recognizing our many volunteers, with breakfast afterward, provided by the teachers.
