Fri. March 1 — Goodbye until next year!

1 Mar

Hi everyone,

Thanks again for your hard work and positive attitudes this year. Today is my last day of teaching…time for me to get ready to have this baby!

I’ll try to drop by in term 3 to say hello, but if I don’t make it in for a visit with the baby — have a great term 3 and summer, and I’ll see everyone again next school year!!

-Ms. Tong

Two things on today’s agenda:
