ARTIST IN RESIDENCE WAS WONDERFUL
We were soooooo lucky to have Ms. Gwen as our guest puppeteer last week.  She helped us create clay heads, make costumes, design sets, and develop stories to be told with our puppets.  The kids did amazing so stay tuned for the videos yet to be shared.  Also, they will be bringing their puppets home tonight.
                                                                    
You may have heard that I have been sick for the past few weeks and I am sorry for anything that has gone unaddressed.  After four days in bed and lots of meds I am almost back to myself.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

That being said . . . we are also seeing a lot of runny noses and using an enormous amount of tissues.  If you can spare a box of tissue it would be greatly appreciated!   
                                           

Dismissal

Please continue to email me with any changes in your child’s dismissal schedule.  If it is a late in the day change you must call the office and they will get the information to me.  I do not check emails in the afternoon until after students have gone home.  Thanks for keeping this very important communication going.
