Hello upcoming First Graders and Parents,
I hope you are enjoying your summer break so far. I’ve been having a fabulous summer! Some things I’ve enjoyed so far are going to Disneyland with my husband and three children, exploring the White Mountains, walking my sweet golden retriever, swimming, and visiting with friends and family. I’m excited to hear about some of your summer adventures too.
We are going to have a wonderful school year. I can’t wait to start learning together, building our classroom community, and having fun!
