Dear Families,

Wow! We made it! The first week of school just FLEW by for us and we had a BLAST 🙂 We hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I traveled all the way to and from Ohio to visit family I have not seen in a while. Benjamin and Antonia had a great time playing with their cousins. We are so tired lol! I want to welcome you again to room 106. I am so happy with my new penguins and know it is going to be a fantastic year. I thank you for making all the necessary arrangements to make sure your child came in last week for their quick kdg readiness appointments during your busy work weeks. I would also like to send a HUGE thank you to Sebastian and his family for donating TWO huge fans for our hot classroom. We appreciate you so much and will take such great care of these beautiful fans.

Thank you also for being so prompt returning the emergency cards, lunch forms and anything else included in your beginning of the year packet from Ms. Cathy and Ms. Ann in the office. If you would like to volunteer in the building at all this year or come along on a field trip, please make sure you have completed an ichat form in the office. These are good for several years!
