3/17/20- Hi guys!  This will be a way for us to communicate while we are out of school for the next couple of weeks. I will be missing my hugs and drawings from you, so if you want to take pictures of your "stay at home masterpieces" attach them to your e-mails!  I will be checking my page daily, beginning tomorrow 3/18, and having some fun art activities that you can do at home under the Resources tab. Stay safe and keep creating!
