BOTANY: Our next Botany theme is the study of seeds. The students will be observing, sorting, germinating and dissecting seeds. If you have books or other items that support this study, please consider sharing with the classroom community.

Next week’s lesson will include information about famous places in China. Ask your student to share this new knowledge with you. 

SEWING PROJECTS: If you are able to help with a simple sewing project, please let me know and I’ll give you the details. 

ANNUAL PARENT SURVEY: This year’s parent survey will be available online (soon) and in hard copy during conferences. Please complete the survey and record your volunteer time!
