and can be dropped off at anytime, on that day, between 5:00pm – 6:00pm. Packets
can be returned earlier than May 4th if you prefer. Please take the packet with
your child’s last name on it.Just two weeks ago, who knew that we would be
facing such a crisis in our country and in our community. Let’s hope and pray
that this comes to an end very soon, and let’s say a special prayer for all
those who have been affected in ANY way by this pandemic. Please be assured of
our prayers for you and your families. Thank you for your help. We will
certainly miss having your child(ren) in class. It has truly been a blessing to
be able to work with them this year. If you have any questions or concerns,
