Our April book order has officially been placed and should arrive early next week. Thanks to everyone who purchased books we were able to purchase 43 FREE books for our classroom. We also earned an Earth Day poster and a diversity poster. All students will be receiving a diverse reading sticker as well. Our May orders will come home shortly and will be due mid-May. This will be our last order of the year. Thank you for all of your support in helping us grow our classroom library. The students and I are excited to open our book box and share all of the new books next week!

We are off to a busy start of our last quarter of the year! Our new science unit is all about life cycles and the students are excited to watch our caterpillars grow and change into butterflies. They should be joining our classroom this week. The French students from the high school will be joining us Wednesday mornings from 10:25 - 10:55 am to teach our class their language. We have Organella next week. She will be teaching the students about their organs and their functions.
Paperwork for our upcoming Healthworks field trip came home in your child's Friday Folder. They will need to bring a sack lunch to school that day or order a school sack lunch. If you plan on joining us, please make sure you have returned your volunteer paperwork to our office and are approved. Everyone is welcome to join us - you will be notified if you are riding the bus. Please remember that money for chaperones is due with the permission slip. Let me know if you have any questions!
Our field day and picnic are also fast approaching. More information will be coming home with your child. If you are planning on helping out with either or both activities, please make sure you have completed and received approval of your volunteer paperwork with our office. This is a special day for you and your child!
Watch the weather and dress your child accordingly. We have a muddy field and playground and a change of shoes is an easy way to help keep our classroom clean. We have April snow followed by spring weather. Make sure your child has a coat or sweatshirt when needed. Thank you!
