Greetings


Dear Spring Weather,

That was very clever of you. You stayed back, for months, played hard to get, so that now when we finally see you, we remember what you’re like, are enticed by you, want to play with you. Even if you stopped by and it was a school day, you bring hopes of spring weekends, where we can frolic and enjoy you. Very cleaver weather, you get this round. My hat is off to you.


Onto more important things, this week brings us one step closer to summer break so I hope everyone is putting in their best efforts and tackling those mounds of work I know we are all slowly feeling the weight of, but before you go here are just a few reminder…
