November Goals~ L.I.F.E. Academy

We have a new classroom pet!

Tuttle the Turtle has been with us several years now.

Betta the Fish was just given to us from a neighbor.

We have not named our pets, but simplicity seems to be a common theme don’tcha think?

Katie’s Floral Arrangement class is going well.
