Summertime Has Arrived!!


Today was the last day of school! I'm always sad when the year ends. We spent so much time together! 180 days! That's a lot! I hope you all have a safe and fun summer! Encourage your child to keep a journal, read books, and practice math facts. I'll be traveling with Mr. Farrand and Asher this summer.  It's going to be fun! Thanks so much for checking in! :)
