  • I went to open house and checked out alot of the classrooms. I think Mrs. Welna puts alot of effort into her students as individuals. There were pictures of them everywhere near their classwok, desks and projects. I thought that was beautiful. And thank you Mrs. Orange Thomas for the short video of our kids reading the story of the buttefly.
