Dear Country Springs Family and Friends,

I hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day holiday.  I know you join me in giving thanks to all who gave their lives so we can continue to be free.

This is the last week of school.  Individual grade levels are doing things, so check in with your child’s teacher to see what is going on this week in their classroom and/or with their grade level.
