Some of our badger paw recipients this week! The focus this week was on keeping things clean, especially our hallway. Your students are bringing things home from their cubby/shelf area. It’s a good weekend to give the winter coat, hat, and mittens a good wash while kids play in the beautiful weather this weekend!
Every year, Valerie comes to school to help predict the weather. She feels she does a better job than some little ground hog in Pennsylvania. As you can see, she saw her shadow, but... she is a day early. Happy Groundhog's Day from 2C!
