Today starts the first day of the second quarter - how time flies!

This week we will begin our literature book, The Westing Game.  This book is a mystery, that is not solved until the end of the book.  It is a wonderful book full of suspense.

We will also have a Live webcast on Wednesday afternoon with one of the world's most successful singer-songwriters.    

Have a great week!
