Happy New Year!  I hope that January is off to a good start for you.  I’d like to share with our school community that Mme. McIsaac had her baby; a lovely little girl named Everlee Cornelia.  She was born on January 3rd, at 6lbs. 9oz, and 19 inches long.  Everyone is doing well, and Mme. McIsaac and her husband are loving their new roles as parents!  Congratulations to them both as they journey down this new life path!
