Welcome 2nd Graders!!!

Hello students and parents!   Welcome to a new school year.  I hope you all enjoyed your summer.  I know I sure did.  Tell me about the most exciting thing you did over the break.


My family drove to Florida for a brother in-laws wedding.  It was a lot of driving but also a lot of fun too.  We did some swimming, boogie boarding, fishing and hanging out with lots of family.
