July!

Greetings first grade families.

I am busy and excited about school starting in one month.

Our classroom was just given 1000 books.  Our classroom library and guided reading library got a lovely boost.  It was Christmas in July for this teacher.  I can't wait for the reading to begin.

I will making brief home visits in late July and early August.  Do not forget Back to School Night on Aug 12!  I will see many of you next week at Soccer Camp,  too!

Enjoy the rest of summer.  I will see you in church.  Mrs. Weigand
