Did I mention…I LOVE MY CLASS!! This is going to be such a great year! Last year, it was after the first of the year before I was ready to try BYOD. With this class, I am ready now. See information in the red communication folder. Also in the communication folder is information about Safety and Service Team, for those students who were here in 4th grade. New students will have a chance to join in October.
