Welcome October

It’s hard to believe October is here.  It’s been a pleasure getting to know our new students and working with everyone these past weeks.

Our In-Class Lunches have been a great success.  This past week we had macaroni and cheese, carrots and strawberries.  Two weeks ago we had spaghetti and meatballs.  Cooking with the students is so much fun.  I enjoy it as much as they do!

We are lucky enough to have Yoga with Ms. Robyn Jones again this year!  She’ll be coming in Wednesday mornings.

Here is the School Pictures Link:
