Have a great Winter Break!!

Thank you to all students and families for a great 2018 and being so generous! I failed horribly at getting my thank you cards written during the day, but I was really overwhelming with the nice notes.

Have a great break everyone!

PS - I showed students a collection on my background extra clips from 2002-2003, and some asked that I share it. Enjoy!
