Week of May 20, 2019
The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.
Song of Solomon 2:12
I have enjoyed my year with your child. Thank you for allowing me to become a part of his/her life. I will continue to pray blessings and strength on you and your family. Enjoy the summer and all it has to offer in warm weather and long days.
Your child will have a Summer Packet of work to do to keep sharp over the summer. Also, remember access to IXL skills in math, language, science, and social studies at all grade levels is available through July. Your child can use this program on any device by logging in with his/her Google Chrome account where all passwords are saved. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Bryan met his wife, Deb, on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in 2001, and since that time they have climbed and trekked together around the world. When not on the road, trail, or rock, Bryan can be found at his home in the New River Gorge, WV.
