Stronger than you seem,
Smarter than you think,
And loved more than you know."

May's Community Cafe

The theme for the event?
It's the final month of school so  
we're all "Sailing into Summer!"
We introduced Judge Robert Hopkins
to each of our own teachers.
We talked about pets, sailing, baseball
and plans for break after our school year ends.
Ice cream from Lawrenceville
Drive In, the best way to end lunch!

You Did WHAT in School?

Break out the "Pie Face" game;
why not give it a try together in class?

There could be a big surprise in store!
Even Mr. Seaney got into the act.
