Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! I know you are probably looking forward to Spring Break like we are.

I wanted to just give you a few bits of information.

Running Springs has a website! This website is separate from the PTA website in includes the non-PTA sponsored events and activities. The web address is:

There is also a school calendar on this website and it can be added to your own calendar (How cool is that?!)

The PTA website is also a great place to go for information. They sponsor many school events so it a great place to go and stay informed!

I have updated the upcoming events section of our class website so be sure to take a look!

Have a great Spring Break Everyone!

Welcome to Mrs. Fordham’s class!

We hope everyone has enjoyed the first few weeks of school.

Myself, Gloria Franklin (Alyson’s mom), along with Karen Hendrickson (Bryce’s mom), are the room parents this year.  We are excited to make this a fun and eventful year, as well as keep all the parents up-to-date on what is happening in the classroom.  Throughout the year we will be coordinating parties, attending school-wide meetings and working on any other class related projects that may come up.  We are always open to new ideas and welcome help, so please let us know if you would like to help in any way.
