I hope everyone is safe and back home if they were displaced during the devastating Carr Fire this past week. I was able to return home on Monday night and we were so glad to see there was no damage to our home. Sadly, several of my friends weren't able to say the same and I'm sure many of you have friends and family who may have lost their homes as well. As our community is busy reaching out and supporting those affected by the fires, I realize you are probably very busy helping out or getting situated yourselves. Please do not worry about school supplies to start the year off right now. We will get by just fine. It is extremely helpful for your child to have a backpack to get things to and from school each day so if you can provide that or reach out to the many outreach programs offering backpacks that would be helpful. If you need information on the programs, please let me know and I can get you in contact with them or even go in your place to pick one up if you would like. If you are in a place that you would like a school supplies list, you will find it below. Chrysalis will provide any of the supplies that our classroom is lacking after school starts back. I look forward to meeting your children and having a memorable third grade year together! See you soon!
