Rugs RFF Thank You

At the November PTO meeting we approved an RFF (request for funds) for special rugs to help organizing instruction time in several of the 1st grade classes.

Bethany PTO,

Thank you for investing in our classroom rugs! We use them many times a day for lessons and read-alouds. We also love using them to sit around the perimeter of the rugs when we need to circle up as a class. Thanks again for purchasing these colorful and helpful rugs!
