Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful moms!  I hope you all have had a marvelous weekend!  This week is a four day week as Friday is a day off for students and teachers that will allow us all to have an extra long weekend.  Look below for this week’s activities.  I would like to thank all of you who have been working hard with your children, ensuring that they have been participating in online learning.  I know that these past two months have been nothing less than a real challenge and I am truly grateful foe all of you hard-working moms and dads!

Have a lovely week,

Mrs. Smylie
