Each day the students and I use Zoom video for a morning meeting and grade level meetings This is great way to connect. I love being able to see everyone! On Thursday, May 14, 2020 we had Hat Day or Favorite Costume Day! It was so nice to see everyone wearing their favorite hat/costume. Next week will be Wear Your Favorite Color Day!
