Lucy's View

Lucy is LOVING school! It took a couple weeks to adjust to the new schedule, but she seems to be absolutely flourishing now! Her teacher said that she has seen HUGE improvement in her listening skills and behavior. She also said that she was extremely smart and strong willed ;) heehee!

We could not be more pleased with Monte Cassino, so far. We love it! I mean I knew we would, its such a wonderful school. Lucy is THIRD generation there! My mom went there along with her sister AND my sis and I went there! Its so great because so many of the teachers and faculty still around and remember my sister and me. I love that :)

Lucy's teacher is fantastic and Lu just adores her. Every morning she races down the hall to her classroom and says, "Good morning, Mrs. Capmbell!" with the biggest grin on her face :) Mrs. Campbell is awesome at keeping us updated with the "happenings" during the school day. Every evening she post the daily schedule and some pictures she has taken through out the day. Its great to get a little glimpse into the kids day... And now you can too!

Wow, that is such a great idea to send the parents an email about the day. And pictures? What a bonus! Sounds like an amazing school. Glad to hear Lucy is transitioning well into her new routine!
