August Update

by Mrs. Nilsen on August 2nd, 2012

August "Monthly" News

I keep finding myself thinking of all of you during my travels.  So I might have bought a post card to send to all of my wonderful Seniors.  See below!
In case you're not sure where New York is, take a look below.  I don't want to assume anything after I saw our Senior's knowledge of Oregon geography at ODS last year... ;)  We'll work on that.

Summer's coming to a close.

In other news, summer is nearing its end.  As you enjoy these last few weeks, I hope you start to feel excited for the start of our new year.  Keep the supplies and dates below in mind as you prepare for our awesome upcoming school year.
