Our class mascot has been introduced to the class and they all adore him. When your child is the star of the week, Snowy the husky dog will spend the week at your home. Snowy will go home in a bag on Monday and should be returned to class on Friday. There is a special journal that Snowy carries with him. Please help your child post pictures, draw, and/or write about the adventures Snowy had at your home. Your child will share his/her journal entry on that Friday. Thanks for your help! J
