Welcoming Baby Victoria!!

I’m elated to welcome Baby Victoria to the world this morning. Baby and I are doing well and she’s been napping for the last few hours. We’re enjoying our new bundle of joy! Here’s a picture of her.


I miss everyone at school and I look forward to visiting the class some day before summer vacation begins. Enjoy the last bit of grade 5 and 6, Div. 3!! I know Mr. Kachmar has been a great asset to our school and we’re very lucky to have him share with his expertise with us!
