A Note From Mrs. Phillips
He is risen!! I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter and are feeling refreshed after a week off! I was eager to return and begin teaching again. With only 29 more days to learn, we have a lot to pack in to the end of third grade!
In blue folders this week, you will receive a permission slip for our Saluda Shoals trip on Tuesday, May 23rd. I am in need to at least 8 chaperones for us to be able to go. You MUST be Virtus certified and cleared by Ms. Elliott. Please let me know right away if you would like to attend as I have only had one parent respond. This is a great field trip and even our very own Mrs. Preston will be canoeing with us this year!
