I hope you all enjoyed the holidays. Thank you so much to all the families for the delicious treats, gifts, and cards. I also want to thank everyone for participating in the family tradition sharing homework. I enjoyed learning more about your families and what is important to your children. The projects have been posted in the hallway and I encourage you to stop by the classroom before or after school to check them out. I am excited to share with you that we will have a full-time student teacher from January until May. Her name is Laura Hesla. She is from the University of Portland. I hope you will stop by and introduce yourself to her when you can.
