    Hi, I really like the Grade 2 website. However, like many other sites, I forget that it is there. Have you thought about sending a broadcast email to all Gr 2 parents when you post new stuff? Or maybe a weekly email reminder? You could put a link to the site in the email. I would visit the site more often if reminded of it.

    Thanks,
    Amy (Nik’s mom)
    Also — info about Lara out of date; need to change to Tima?

    • Hi Amy,

      Thanks for the comment and suggestions.
      You can sign up for updates via “entries rss” if you want to be notified of changes on our blog.

      I have been meaning to update the changes for Ms. Tima – Thanks for the reminder.

      –Mikey 🙂
