Happy Friday Tiger Families!
Wow can you believe we’ve already reached the end of the first marking period. This first 9 weeks has flown by. We will keep pressing on with our learning and fun into the 2nd marking period. Before we know it the Holidays will be upon us!
Thank you to all who were able to come in for a conference or call in for a telephone conference on Tuesday or Thursday! I enjoyed having the opportunity to meet and talk with you. Partnering together leads to a successful school year!
