I hope your family had a wonderful and restful fall break!  I certainly had a lovely time with my sister and her family!  We were excited to learn that my sister and brother-in-law are expecting baby number 5 in June! Please keep them in your prayers. <3

Many thanks to all of you! Our Parent-Teacher Conferences were 100% attended and I think the students carried themselves quite well.  I am very proud of their efforts. As always, feel free to get in touch with me should the need arise.  I am here for you!
