Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):Thank you to everyone who made it out for conferences last week. We had a wonderful turnout. I was also excited to be able to meet with so many families from both classes. Thank you for all your time and patience with our changes. Mrs. Krueger and I feel that the criticism we received the first night helped us make the second day/night much better. Having the opportunity to meet with so many families and give them as much feedback and suggestions as I could. I also wanted to take another chance to thank all the families who kept us full both days. The amount of food, and quality of food, that was brought in was wonderful. Just, thank you very much.
