What do I enjoy? What have I done? What do I want to do? Hobbies Interests Activities From A-Z Mr. Solomon tells all…
Hi, my name is Mr. Solomon and I will be your teacher this year. Over the course of our school year together, we will be doing lots of fun activities. During that time, I look forward to getting to learn more about you. As we embark on our new school year, not only would I like to learn about you, but I am going to tell you about myself, maybe we have a lot in common.

H Hiking Staying fit and active is very important. One way that I do this, while having fun, is through hiking. Have you ever gone hiking?
