Week of August 21st

What an awesome week we had!  We are in the full swing of our daily routine and I couldn’t be prouder!  We will be adding in some more specific groups in the upcoming weeks including guided reading groups and math groups.  This will help me meet your child exactly where they are and help bridge any gaps.
