Curriculum October 24-28
It has been a pleasure meeting with each of you about your child's progress. I really enjoy how each of you are so involved in your child's education. Without your partnership, success would not happen.
A special thank to Lisa VanInwegen who has planned our Halloween party on Friday, October 28. Also, thank to each of you for volunteering to send in the necessary supplies to enable the party to be a success.
