Fifth Grade Family Letter

March 19, 2019

Good afternoon families,

Mountain School was such an amazing experience. It was great to see the children interact with each other in a positive manner. The trail instructors had nothing but praises for our students, not only for their knowledge, but also for their behavior. The kiddos learned so much and were active participants. Thank you to all the chaperones, you made my job very easy! And above all, thank you to all the parents for their support! (pictures coming soon)
