Goodbye Penguins class

Penguins class thank you for being such a wonderful class. I am really proud of all of you. I’m so sad that we aren’t ending this year together. We had such a great year together before lock down and have loved to see all your amazing home learning during. Keep making me proud next year 🙂

I wish you and your family a very safe and happy summer and I look forward to seeing you all again when we can all return safely to school in September.

Can you find your name? Make sure to come see me next year so I can give you the key chain with your name of it 🙂

Will miss you all!
