Hello Parents,

“Let’s Get Together” Parent Meeting:  Tuesday’s parent meeting was a lot of fun!  We learned some games that you can play at home with your child that help grow the brain’s executive functioning.  So cool!  Let me know if you weren’t at the meeting and would like us to review it at the next parent meeting, which will be later this month.

Take Care,

Teacher Laura
