It was so wonderful meeting with all of my student’s parents this week! Thank you for taking the time to come in on Wednesday. It is such a joy learning more about my students by meeting the people who care about them most!
*Although I love this fall weather, it has gotten a lot colder a lot sooner than expected. Please remind your child to wear a winter jacket to school. They will not be permitted to go outside without a jacket if the temps are in the 30s-40s.
Here is what is happening in Mrs. O’Donnell’s classroom this week…
