Welcome to our classroom’s website.  This website has been designed to help share what is happening in class with our families at home.   There is access to many items that may be needed for class or that have been forgotten for homework.  There are also links to many sites that we visit during the year.  We hope that you get a better understanding of what is happening daily in our classroom!
