Having two snow days last week was quite a surprise! I hope everyone was able to stay warm! Winter is here, hopefully it doesn’t stay for too long this year! Just a reminder we DO have school this Friday January 12th. Our teacher in service day has been moved to Tuesday, January 16th (due to high school finals) (No School Monday, January 15th)
Here is what is happening in Mrs. O’Donnell’s classroom…
