Thank You, Education Foundation!

My students and I want to thank the Education Foundation for the generous donation to our room. We will be getting a microphone that will be used when students are presenting Passion Projects, performing reader’s theater, and sharing other masterpieces and works of wonder and creativity.

Also, when this teacher is reading six times a day, my voice will no longer be strained from doing so.

We appreciate you!

Now we’re just waiting excitedly for our microphone to come in!
