hard to believe that spring is really here given this past week’s
dreary weather. However the forecast looks great for the weekend and
next week. We are all looking forward to some warm sunny days and
outdoor recess. This leads me to the next topic. As a reminder, please
make sure that your child completes their homework and reading every
night. Also please continue to sign their planners and reading sheets.
It is important to maintain the same routine even though the longer days
and nicer weather have arrived!
are very excited about the arrival of our next Science Kit: Land and
Water. We will be doing many interesting experiments over the next few
weeks examining the relationship between the land and water. One of our
first lessons will be modeling the water cycle. We will be learning
about the processes of evaporation and condensation. Please ask your
child about it!
week we will be doing many fun and exciting activities to celebrate
Reading Week. Below you will find the scheduled activities for the
