  Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a lovely weekend!


We had another great week. This week we learned about the sun, earth, day, and night. They made great connections. They applied their  learning in their reading and writing. I am VERY impressed with their growth in writing!


 We also have some new friends join us this week…We have ladybugs and butterflies!!! We had ladybug larvae and caterpillars join us this week. We will watch the lifecycle of both insects. The kids got to name our new pets. :)

We are excited to announce the upcoming Spring Fling (Daddy/Daughter Dance).   This event will be held at Timber Trail on Saturday, April 9th from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm.

You can purchase tickets here, but more details will come after Spring Break.

DONATIONS NEEDED FOR THE HEALTH ROOM

The Health Room desperately needs donations of socks, undergarments, and pants and/or shorts for our boys and girls aged 5-8.  If you have a few items that would fit grades K-2 and would like to drop them off for the Health Room so we have items for students to change into when needed, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
