Where is Spring?

Greetings Hopper Families!

Has anybody seen Spring around anywhere? It must be lost in some corner of the world. If you find it, please send it here!!! It takes every ounce of self control not to scream when I hear the word snow on the weather forecast. Spriiiiing!! Where are you??!!!

Regardless of this ridiculous weather, we had a fantastic week. Our 2nd graders had a great time at Books for Breakfast. Thank you to all the family members that came to share the breakfast. Movie night was fun too. The kids loved it! The parents... well, let's just say it's a kids' movie. Thanks Roseanne Myers for managing it and the volunteers for helping out. You volunteers also have full time jobs, families and issues to address. We are so grateful you take a little of your time to help us, PTO, make these events for the Reidenbaugh kids and staff a success. Here is another email I would like to share with you all so you understand why we do these things.

Thank you, thank you!!

Thank you so much to the PTO and Jill and Kim for including my class in the book fair! We really appreciate being included in the activities and my class had a blast with it! Also, thank you so much for purchasing books for our classroom. You bought books for our classroom that will be useful with several of our social studies units. Thank you so much!
