CHERI’S CLASS FAMILY PICNIC: Please come to our class picnic. Meet new friends and old. The picnic is scheduled for Thursday, September 22, 5:30-6:30. Bring your family, a blanket and a picnic dinner. We’ll gather on the hillside behind the classroom. (In case of rain, we’ll move to the classroom or the covered area by the playground)

CHESS CLUB: Brian Schartz, Livingston’s Dad, will continue to offer students in our class special instructional time for learning the game of Chess every Thursday from 2:30-3:00. Thanks Brian! Adult volunteers are welcome.

BIRTH OF THE UNIVERSE- Last week students heard a story about the Big Bang theory of the creation of our universe. The children created awesome art that illustrates galaxies, black holes, stars, planets and more. These paintings are hanging in the hallway outside our classroom if you’d like to see for yourself.

BOTANY STUDIES: This month and next we’ll be learning about seeds. We will look at seeds that come from flowers as well as those that are inside the fruits and vegetables that we eat! If you have sunflowers in your yard, please consider sharing some with the classroom. We’ll also germinate peas and plant them outside in our raised bed along with salad greens. We plan to visit an apple orchard and pumpkin patch at Detering Farms next month. Watch for details in next week’s update.
