What's New



Happy rainy Monday,

With that thought in mind, please make sure your child is leaving the house dressed to withstand a rainy recess. We rarely stay in from recess!

Here are a few dates/events/ and activities taking place this week.

  • ·         Please send in the April 24th permission slip and a printed receipt that you have paid the $5.00 fee online.
  • ·         Picture envelopes are coming home today. If you choose to purchase pictures please hold onto the envelope until the actual picture day on the 31st.
  • ·         This Friday is a Spirit Day with the theme of….pants on your head.
  • ·         Friday is also our Science Fair, which starts at 6:30.
  • ·         Our phonics/spelling focus this week is words that have a hard /g/ sound.
  • ·         We are still working on geometric shapes and their attributes during our math time.
  • ·         This week has us writing compelling book reviews to entice each other to expand our reading repertoires.
  • ·         Your child is bringing home their Reading Responses binder today. I do not need them anymore since we correct and take home most of our work immediately.


I hope to see you at the Science Fair.
