Dear Families,

 Welcome to The Carleton College class!  We are going to have so much fun this year.  My name is Ms. Heidi.  This will be my fifth year at Erie.  Some facts about me are that I have two children; Cecilia and Oliver, I grew up in Michigan, I love art, and I once visited an active volcano and I saw it erupt.

This year we will learn really interesting things in Reading, Writing, Spanish, Math, Science, Social Studies and Art.  To help us learn these things we will solve mysteries, paint pictures, publish books, have debates, go on cool field trips, solve very tricky problems, play all kinds of sports (in our new gym), and turn our classroom into a secret laboratory where we can ask great questions and test our ideas.

We have exciting plans, brilliant students, and the best families in the world coming together in our class this year.  I think we can make this one of the best years in the history of the Carleton College class!
