Hello families!

Don’t forget, there will be no school May 6-May 9th as teachers will be out for home visits. Ms. Thabet and I can’t wait to visit with everyone at their house!

We look forward to seeing everyone back at school on Monday, May 13th.


You may have noticed some changes in our classroom this week, the children worked hard to recover the old furniture in our book area as well as sand some tree stump stools to add a little nature to our room. Come check them out the next time you stop by!


Have a great weekend!
