What a Fantastic First Day at Phoenix!!

It was great to see all the smiling faces and enjoy the frenzy of the first day!!

Well . . . we survived the first day! Yahoo! Just a couple of things:

 

  • Please only use the front door only. The side exits are for emergency. This is a part of our safety plan.
  • Make sure you clean up where you were sitting. Looked pretty good! And Ms. Tash, our homeschooling cleaner mom, thanks you soooo much!
  • There is no problem that can’t be solved. These first few days are busy ones for everyone. Please have patience and we will get to you!

 

Classes were sure fun! There was papier-mâché, painting, clay and more! Remember to register in advance. We accepted registrations today at the desk because so many of you are new and did not know . . . but you do need to register in advance!
