Dear Parents,

Wow, what a year! To better state that- what a GREAT year! We have covered a lot of material and participated in many fun and exciting projects. We have developed skills needed for Kindergarten and made many new friends along the way too. Each of your children has brought such joy and happiness to our classroom. We are so fortunate to have had such a wonderful group of children this past year. Thank you!

Best,

Ms. Manganaro and Mrs. Smolky
