"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear"

Will Ferrell, Elf

I hope you have a peaceful break and a Happy New Year.  2021 is almost OVER and it was painful but created resilience in all of us.  

Winter Break

Over the winter break, please ask your child to continue to read every day and work on multiplication facts. Two weeks is a long time and I would hate to have anyone go too far backwards.
