Back from Break! March 26-30, 2012

Hello families,

Welcome back! I do hope everyone had a lovely two weeks off. I was sick at the beginning and at the end of break, but luckily all major plans happened in the middle when I was well! I am excited to be back in the routine of things. Can you believe we are in the 4th quarter already? My has this year just been super quick. Pretty soon we'll be done with Easter and AIMS and your student will be off to middle school. I want to wish everyone a successful remaining quarter. As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
