Thank you all for attending our students led conferences this week! Each child loved showing their parents their work and progress they have made! I am so proud of them!! I hope you enjoy the “disguise a turkey” family project. Please send your disguised turkey in as soon as you can so that we can enjoy them before the Thanksgiving break.
