Happy Summer!

I had a fabulous year with your children. They grew so much in their faith and knowledge of so many things. I am very proud of them all!

In their plastic bag is their Flat Stanley information and items from Miss Foley for the start of Third Grade. There is also a reading list and log to be kept over the summer.

See you in September.

Thank you also for your many generous gifts and warm wishes!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Jan McDonnell
