Our SUPER CRITTERS are going UP...UP...UP! We are meeting out goal! Today Alta kids took the DIBEL test. After checking the results, we get to watch SUPER CRITTERS fly out the DOOR! Only 11 more days of Kindergarten...and then your little one is officially a first grader!!! Wowie, Wow! Wow! I can't believe it. I am so proud of this group. They have accomplished a lot. They are writing a ton. I can't wait for them to read their Autobiographies with you next Friday. They have included a personal narrative as their final writing project.

I am in NEED of magazines to refill my stash for next year. Please send them in!
