Hello Students!! 

 

In the past, I have done an end of the year assignment that students have loved. However, when I came to EHT I stopped because I had so many students, and it became costly to complete this “FUN” assignment. If you are interested in participating, please bring a self-addressed stamped envelope (Forever stamp), or bring in $ .47 and I will purchase the stamps. Once you buy a forever stamp, it truly lasts forever. Therefore, when you receive your assignment back via the USPS, it will have been paid for ten years earlier!! 

 

 

All the best, 

Ms. McLaughlin
