We had a nice Veteran’s Day Assembly this morning too! We sang a song called, “We Love Our Flag.” They did a nice job! :)

It was a fast week and we have a short week again next week too!
Teachers have PD on Monday and then Veteran’s Day is Tuesday, so I won’t see the students again until Wednesday, November 12th.
Have a great weekend!
