Many thanks to Michele & Fred Beranek (Preston's Grandparents) for the most generous monetary gift. We will use it wisely and well. Bless you both. A big thank you to Kevin and Rae Leigh Warner (Caleb's parents) for the National Geographic Kids Magazine subscription. We enjoy these wonderful magazines each month. What a nice surprise! We received dinosaur skeletons and bookmarks for our dino unit in science from Preston Watson's family. They also purchased really cool pencils that say "keep up the good work" and "top secret confidential." They bought Mrs. Alsbrooks the top loading dry erase sleeves she wanted. Thank you sooooo much! I am overwhelmed by the generosity of so many parents who purchased 25 books for our classroom from my teacher wish list at the Mead Hall Book Fair. Another huge thank you to the Brown Family(Carly) and the Starks Family(Kendall) for a brand new folding table and four chairs to be used for small group activities during the second semester. With Visa and Barnes and Nobles gift cards I received at Christmas from wonderful parents, I purchased 68 new paperback books for our class for second semester! Thank you!
