I am so sorry that it took this long to update the blog-it's been a crazy month!
I have absolutely loved getting to know and work with your student, and I wanted to get you updated with everything that is happening in our class.
We are so proud of all of the students who were recognized for their hard work last semester, and we wanted to say thank you to all of the parents who were able to make it!
A big congratulations to our class Spelling Bee winners, Shafa and Akilah! These two ladies will be competing in the school Spelling Bee on January 25!

Do you have a special art, music, dance, design, or even a cooking related skill? Mrs. Brooks is looking for parent volunteers to be a part of our Performing Arts Day on March 31st! This is a day where our students rotate around the school visiting a variety of dancers, artists, performers, etc. Each session is about 30 to 45 minutes long from 8am to about noon. If you are interested in volunteering your talent and/or skill, even if it is just for one hour in the day, please contact Mrs. Brooks at: firstname.lastname@example.org
