Woah! Way to go Room 115! Thanks to your family and friends, our class alone reached and exceeded our goal of raising over $2,000! We celebrated with a pizza and movie party last Friday. Great work everyone! The walk-a-thon happened while rainy and windy outside so teachers did not get to take many pictures. If any of our parents who attended were able to take pics, please share with me via email.

 

Reminders:

  • We hope your Flat Stanley is on his adventure! He can be returned to school by mail or in person after Memorial Day weekend.
  • Game Day tomorrow- bring your favorite board game or card game to share.
