March 17th 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Our Leprechaun traps turned out amazing!! Each table group worked together as a team to create a one of a kind Leprechaun trap in great hopes that we may catch the pesky guy.  It was a lot of fun to watch the kids work together and watch their ideas come to life.  Sadly that sneaky guy got away from Room 202 but he dropped a lot of gold along the way so we aren’t too upset.
