Happy fall! I hope everyone is enjoying this nice break in the weather! While it isn’t “looking” much like fall, at least the weather is cooperating! Thank you to all parents who joined our parent-teacher conferences. We enjoyed the opportunity to speak with each of you about your little one! We hope this conference helped set the stage for a great year of learning and growing!
