By now I'm sure that most of you have seen your child's Tree Book through the Seesaw blog.  If you haven't accessed the Seesaw app yet, please email me at for directions on how to get onto the Seesaw app to view and hear your child's work throughout the year.  Seesaw allows you to access and comment on your child's work.  They are thrilled when they see a message from an adult that they know and love!
