Way to Go!!!

Our Way to Go award winner last week was Hayden Reynolds. Hayden was a rockstar all week, listening to directions before starting his work, doing his best on his assignments, and staying quiet when he knew he was supposed to be. Way to go, Hayden!

Pen Pal Update

I have assigned our Australian pen pals to the kiddos! They finished their letters last week, and they will be sent out tomorrow! We are all so excited to hear back from them!
