I sent home a special Family Tree Project for your child this week. Make sure you see the green paper that went home! The posters are due on Tuesday, October 28th. Please help them gather what they need. Also check important projects for samples.
If you have any questions, please contact me!
Enjoy the long weekend with your son or daughter! I’ll be celebrating Asher’s 1st birthday! I can’t believe he’ll be officially 1 on the 14th!
