Our school year has been memorable and fun! Friendships have been made and we are like a family since we come together 5 Days a week. We will combine with Mrs. Hart’s class to celebrate Holidays Around the World.  We will ring in the New Year making a resolution, Celebrate Valentine’s Day by becoming a Mail Delivery Person, and dress up for Spirit Week. We will have our next Field trip to Leap N Laugh. The Winter months will filled lots of exciting activities:)
