Monday AM Notes, May 15 2023

I hope you enjoyed the amazing Spring weekend! Sunshine and warm temps make everything better! I got out and did a little tree fishing while I was in Corvallis…

I hope that you all felt the love last week and know that you are truly appreciated! I get daily comments from parents about how incredible you all are. I feel so fortunate to work with all of you!

Before the rest of the notes, a big CONGRATS to Ray who will be receiving an Excellence in Education award on June 1. Ray’s tireless 30+ year commitment to bringing joy, excitement, and academic exploration into the classroom is truly extraordinary! Ray, thanks for inspiring all of us with your enthusiasm for this work we do with children.
