Hi Patricia,

Did you ever receive the package? I knew we were having crazy weather but it should have been there by now. I hope all is well and we'd love for you to consider being a Chipper Ambassador this summer. We have great get-ready backpacks shipping at the end of March with some great activities included in them along with lots of items to engage children in the class ...and in the outdoor classroomChipper%20Ambassador%20Into%20the%20Great%20Outdoors.pdf
