A note from Mrs. Burke: Hello 5B families! We are starting to settle into our new routines now that we are in week 3. Students are following all of the safety protocols that have been put in place and I am very proud of them for taking these safety measures seriously. One of the safety protocols we use is a Safety Snake, that each student made with rope and colored duct and electrical tape, to measure and make sure they are staying distantly safe.
