Happy Easter. Here’s the cake Katherine told us she’s be baking! Yum. It looks wonderful!
I hope your weekend was wonderfully fun!
Last week we celebrated YOU! You are each special in so many ways!

You shared your favorite characters from Winterhouse, along what character traits and evidence from the story.

You’ve accomplished all this and more. WOW!
I am proud of you! I hope you are proud of yourself. You are accomplishing great things. Make sure to thank your family for their help and support. It takes us all working together to get it done.
