A Note from Miss De Rhodo
I am proud of the hard work that has been going on in the classroom and am excited to work with the children this week on the theme of Fall. We will be learning about the different sights of the season and even having a special treat on Friday (learning about how apple cider is made and getting to try it!).
I hope you and your students enjoyed reading the special book sent home last week. I could tell the students liked this assignment; a new book will now be sent home each week. One should have come home yesterday (Monday, October 16th).
Thank you for the continued support of your child, their education, and our K5 classroom. It is greatly appreciated!
