Week of May 14- 18

Dear Families,

This year is flying by but we still have lots to accomplish and do here in our classroom. Please continue to practice the skills we work on at school when your child comes home. Keep building their independence to do things themselves. They have grown so much from the beginning of the year! Here’s what we have going on this week.  I would also like to thank each and every one of you for welcoming Mrs. Chahine and I into your homes during home visits.  It was wonderful to spend some with you in a more relaxing and comfortable environment.
