As many of you know, CET First Graders are studying 'Communities' as part of their Social Studies unit. Each First Grade class went to a different local business. Baked by Susan, Feed the Birds, Mexigo a.k.a. Mex-to-Go, ShopRite, Bagels-on-Hudson and Groovy on Grand all welcomed the students with open arms.
We thought this thank you note to Baked by Susan from Ms. Glynn’s class was too adorable not to post. Click on the photo. For more about BBS, visit www.bakedbysusan.com
