Weekly Update from Mrs. Pumphrey

Dear Parents,

Your children did an amazing job on their Canada vacation projects, and we greatly enjoyed every presentation. I loved the variety and how your children incorporated their interests and hobbies into their five days of travel. The projects will be on display in our commons area, so please make sure to drop by and take a look. I also want to take a moment and thank Sandy Piper for coming in on Thursday and serving crepes to our class. It was the perfect end to the presentations.

Please read on for the week ahead:
