Dear Families,
Thank you so much for the Target gift cards I received on Friday. I'm looking forward to some summer shopping :) Thank you for all your kind cards and messages. The year flew by so fast!

Wishing you all a relaxing, fun filled summer (students - I hope you get to do some of the things on your summer 'sand bucket' list!) ⛱🌞😎

See you all in the Fall!

Love, Mrs. Parkin
