Dear Families,


Wow! This is it. Thank you for a great year! I have really enjoyed the time I spent with your children. They are an awesome little group and I know that they will love first grade. Thank you for your support this year. I had amazing helpers both in the classroom and for PE and the library. Your help was  invaluable and certainly made a difference. 


Thank you for the lovely gifts and cards. I love my picnic basket and picnic mat from the class. I'm sure that I will put them both to use this summer. 


Enjoy your break from school
