Wednesday Folder – May 23, 2018

Good Morning Thunderbirds! It’s here! It’s the actual last day of Wednesday Folders!! Summer is 5 days away!! Even though this is the last official Wednesday folder of the year there will probably be some more posts on the website and Facebook through the end of school and summer – so keep an eye out for them.

In the meantime, in case I don’t see you before you go…

Have a fantastic summer and see you next year!!!
