Happy Monday!  We only have a few more days left!  I am so excited to celebrate all summer birthdays with our class today!  Thank you so much for spoiling me for my birthday today!

This was a remarkable year!  Our class created some wonderful memories together!  Thank you to all parents for doing what you did to help make this year successful!  🙂

I hope all parent volunteers got to attend the Volunteer Tea this morning!

Sack Lunch times for Tuesday & Wednesday:  10:30 am 

We will have an Ice Cream End of the Year Celebration for our class tomorrow after lunch so feel free to stop by!

I am sad that I am going miss the last day of school with our class!  My brother is graduating from Pharmacy School in Philadelphia on Wednesday morning and since it is a big milestone for our family, I would hate to miss it.  If you need to reach your child on Wednesday, please call the front office.   If I do not get to see you tomorrow at some point, have a wonderful summer!!!   🙂
