Have a great March break, everyone!

Here’s a message from Mr. Hope of Australia:

“Mrs Theriault, Thank you so much for encouraging your students to contact the wonderful young bloggers of LA19. The students were thrilled to receive messages from Canada and have enjoyed planning their comments to post on your students’ blogs. The whole process has been very inspirational, especially for my first time bloggers. Kind regards – Mr. Hope”
