Baldwin student Hayden Dunn wanted to share some things he's been doing during the COVID 19 quarantine. He also wanted to say that he misses his friends and teachers a lot. He said his momma is helping him and that she rocks when she helps him do his work. Hayden's mom also taught him how to write his uncle Taylor a letter since he's in training in the National Guard. Hayden has been working on a new kitchen for his grandma and has had a lot of new changes. He took spring pictures with his mom and wanted everyone to know he misses Baldwin and everyone at school.
