Welcome back from Fall Break! I hope your time away was wonderful.  The children were eager to share their adventures with me!  It was great to see them this morning, too.  We are ready to start our 2nd quarter of the school year.  I look forward to seeing you at the student-lead conferences this week.  Your child has the date/time recorded, too, but if for some reason it has gotten lost in the shuffle, drop me an email and I will get back with you quickly.
