•  Dear Students and Parents,


    You have been working so hard at home and I am VERY excited about is seeing you this Wednesday to tell you in person how proud I am of you!  Our class pick up time is 11:00-12:00.  Please come to the front car loop and I will hand you your papers through your car window.  I would love, love, love to get to say hi to the children in the backseat.  I will also have jackets that were left in the room if you think you are missing one.  

     I will be giving you a shopping bag that contains the work your student has done, materials for upcoming art projects for this week and next, a graduation certificate and a little treat from me.

    I can’t wait to see you!


    Mrs. Gorton
