   What a fun day!  Thank you so much to all the parents that helped make the Holiday Bazaar a success.  It was wonderful to watch the students thoughtfully pick out gifts for their friends and family.  Please make sure to look through your child’s Friday folder with them, and keep the student work (other than math quizzes!).  The folder should come back to school on Monday. On another exciting note, we are starting to plan the 5th grade camping trip!  Mark your calendars for May 24-25.  We will be sending more detailed information after winter break.
