Photos from our Buddy Activity on Friday

Hello parents!

I hope your families have been able to take some time to enjoy this beautiful weekend. On Friday afternoon, we did a fun craft activity with our kindergarten buddies. You should be so proud of the leadership and kindness your children demonstrate with their buddies. We ended the day with popsicles and some time with our buddies on the playground. Miss Hutichison took some adorable photos and posted them on her classroom blog. Click here to visit her blog and your your amazing kids in action!
