Update on Kindergarten

A special thank you to Patti Arndt, who was the Guest Teacher in our Kindergarten class, for helping to get the year started on a great note!  Patti is a retired K teacher and she stepped in to help until a new teacher could be hired.  Diana Beckley has now been hired to teach that class.  Diana will shadow Patti on 9/7 and 9/8 and take over on her own on 9/11.  We are so grateful to Mrs. Arndt!  And we’re so excited to have Diana move over into this K position!
