I miss you friends, but we are so lucky we can connect in our Zoom Room! It's not the same as being together, but it's better than not seeing each other at all! Enjoy this song from Olaf. He says what your teachers, Mrs. O, Ms. Kelly and all the staff at Bells Mill are thinking. We can't wait to be together again, but for now, let's keep thinking good thoughts and connecting online. You are all doing great, and I'm glad if I had to go through quarantine, I'm getting to visit with you online!
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We are off to a great start with twenty-three happy students ready to grow and learn! This website will be updated weekly with optional homework, information about the curriculum, and other information about what is happening in our classroom. I look forward to a wonderful year with your children!
A HUGE thank-you to our amazing room parents, Mrs. Iseman, Mrs. McClellan, Mrs. Goldstein, and Mrs. Snyder. The service project to provide busy bags for local homeless shelters was a wonderful idea, and I'm sure will be appreciated! The treats were yummy, and the kids had a really fun time. The kids will remember this for a long time!
