Bursting with Pride! (Way to Go Students!)

We had a huge turnout for the Open House and it was a joy to see the children teaching their family members about the arcade games, as well as watching them laugh and play with them.

Our classroom arcade had 12 different games and all participants received a certificate for playing! It was a wonderful night to celebrate the creativity and imagination of the students in our classroom.

Thank you students! What a great start to the new school year!

Sincerely,

~Mrs. Hill~
