Meet Elizabeth!!

Hope everyone has had a great summer. I’m looking forward to seeing all my sweet students when I return on October 28th. Meanwhile, please feel free to contact my maternity replacement, Lucy Chapman.

On August 1st, at 9:04 PM, my husband and I welcomed our daughter, Elizabeth Roper Rich, into the world. She weighed 7 pounds 15 oz, and was 21.5 inches long.

Summer!!!!!

 

Summer is here and I’m so very glad! Although, if you are reading this in August, that means school is getting ready to begin. For my new 2nd grade and 4th grade parents, I will be having an extended summer this year. My first baby, Elizabeth, is due on July 29th. I will be taking 12 weeks of maternity leave which puts me back at school at the end of October. I will have a replacement counselor in my place for that period of time. Please feel free to contact him/her. Also, you can always contact the full time counselor at HES and HIS. I will see everyone in October!!

Tis March!

My favorite month is here!! As a girl from an Irish background and from living abroad in Ireland in college, it is probably easy to guess that my favorite holiday is St. Patrick’s Day. I love all the green!!

I hope you have a very “Lucky” month and enjoy your parent newsletters. 🙂
