Mrs. Brammer's Last Blog

Parents,

     I have mixed feelings as I prepare to finish my time at NLCA. I'll miss everyone, but like many others, I'm ready for a rest. The students have worked very hard and I hope they've learned a lot. Thanks so much for all the prayers, lunch-packing, studying that you helped with, checking those folders, and all the drop-off and pick-up days. I appreciate you so much!

Please have your student continue to bring take-home folders Monday through Wednesday.
