Week 34 with Mrs. Farley

Another week down, y’all, the time is just flying by! I know the 4th graders did their best on both the Math and ELA SBAC tests over the last 2 weeks and I’m so proud of them.

First, Monica Snooks and another Wells Fargo employee came to introduce financial literacy to the...
