Letter to my students:
Dear First Grade Friends,
I hope you had a good week last week. I know you're working hard. I pray for you and your families everyday and look forward to when I can see you again. I still miss you very much!! If you haven't heard, we got a new puppy!!! His name is Lincoln and he is 14 weeks old. He is funny, fluffy and mischievous. Maybe some day you'll get to meet him. Don't forget your morning routine. Don't forget to get outside for fresh air and don't forget I love you!!!
For those of us who need a schedule, Mrs. Daley shared this with us and I thought I'd pass it on!!
