Hey Students and Parents! Next week, during one of our study sessions, my class will take a walking tour in the neighborhood to look at the various architectural details, roofs lines, and landscaping we have talked about in class. This is a worthwhile trip for them to see the details we have talked about in class. We will stop by a store in the neighborhood to see what the business owner does with refurbished furniture and accessories as well. We will stop by a local restaurant to grab a quick bite and walk back to campus. Please sign the parent permission slip and send back to school with you student.
Thank you so much!
Have a wonderful summer and I look forward to meeting you this fall!!!
