Good morning parents!
  Happy Thursday! I hope this email finds you happy and well! Thank you for all the goodies and love shown to me this week for Teacher Appreciation Week! I definitely have felt the love :) Our week has been busy- musical rehearsals, progress testing, finishing up another Math chapter, and getting ready for Kindergarten graduation! 
  I will be out of the classroom tomorrow morning and the kids will have Kerrin Kastenschmidt for a substitute teacher. I leave this afternoon to fly to Minneapolis. I’m so excited- I’ll get to see my parents and enjoy my graduation weekend with them, my boyfriend, and a few close friends. I’ll be back in the classroom Monday morning. 
  Show and Tell tomorrow is for the letter Xx and Yy. The kids will have the opportunity to watch the 5-8th grade play, The Wizard of Oz, tomorrow afternoon! They should wear their new Aaron, the Allergic Shepherd t-shirt Friday night to the musical! In addition to their t-shirt, have them wear khaki shorts, and tennis shoes! They should arrive by 6:10. Hayley, Zachary, and Giselle should come to the Kindergarten classroom to get lined up. Noah, Ethan, and Mason should go to the 7th & 8th grade classroom to get lined up!
