ZOOM MEETINGS

I will be scheduling regular Zoom meetings for every Tuesday beginning April 21 at 11:00. I will also be scheduling “office hours” every Friday beginning April 24 from 11:00 -11:30. All Zoom meetings are certainly optional on your part but I do look forward to seeing all my little friends. The Friday office hours are just for the kids to pop in and out and chat with me one-on-one or with a small group. It’s also a great time to ask me any questions about the assigned classwork. I’m happy to hear some reading too!

PICTURES

I love all the pictures! Please keep them coming!

MY HOURS

I am available for email communication ANYTIME!

JOKE OF THE DAY:

First graders (and Mrs. Cincilla) just love funny jokes and riddles! Give this one a try:

Question: I’m full of keys but I can’t open any door. What am I?

Answer: A piano.

Grant me the strength

to focus this week,

to be mindful and present,

to serve with excellence,

to be a force of love.
