Our school year has been memorable and fun so far! Friendships have been made and we are like a family coming together  5 Days a week. We will combine with Mrs. Harts’s class to celebrate Holidays around the World.  The children have enjoyed our Holiday projects that go along with the Letters. They have also loved our Holiday Dances. We will ring in the New Year making a resolution, become a Mail Delivery Person for Valentine’s Day, celebrate Spirit Week, and then become adorable Leprechauns. The year will continue to be filled with laughs, love and learning:)
