Thank you to everyone who attended family conferences. It was a delight to see your child share his/her work with you! I am proud of the students for their inspiring work! If you were unable to schedule a meeting during conference days, please feel free to schedule a meeting with me after school.

Knitting and Crochet Needles

We are looking for a donation of knitting/crocheting needles. If you have extra needles that you could donate to the class, that would be awesome.
