I will be at Barnette on Tuesday, from 9:15-10:30 to hand out certificates and treats to my 6th graders. I hope you can make it there to say goodbye.
Finally, I hope you all rest up, relax and enjoy the summer. You are all welcome to keep in contact with me throughout the summer. I’ll check my email periodically. I look forward to hearing from you.
