    Hi Celeste!

    My summer has been really good. I’ve been camping a little and I took a trip out west to see some mountains! What have you been doing?

    Hey, how do you like the new website? I’ve been working pretty hard on it.

    Don’t worry about 5th grade. You’ll have an awesome teacher and will do great, just as long as you work hard, do all your work, try your best and never give up when things get a little tough. You can do it, for sure!

    Well, it will be hard to find a better class than you guys! You broke so many world records, and you beat your reading goal by a ton! But maybe I can get a class that will be just as good as you guys!

    Talk to you later,

    Mr. Howd
