We just wrapped up the school year and I am sitting here marveling at the fact that our little school is FIVE years old!  How time flies when you’re having fun (or working so hard that you can’t see straight…)

To celebrate, I’ve decided to fill up the summer with free printables.  You know how much I like them printables…!  I will be sharing a new free printable every Friday until our first day back to school.

Freebie Fridays

I’ve created a new password protected page for subscribers where you can access all the free printables I have made.  If you’re already a subscriber, you should see the current password in the latest email update you’ve received from us.  If you are not a subscriber yet, simply sign up in the box below and check your email to confirm your subscription.  The password will be included in your welcome email after you confirm.  See more information about subscribing here.
