Pumpkin Patch
It's field trip time! Next Tuesday, October 16th, our class will visit Northern Lights Farm. During our visit, we will take a tractor hay ride tour of of the farm, view farm animals in a natural setting and visit the "Owl's Nest" and "Bat's Roost." We will also visit the pumpkin patch and watch a trebuchet launch a pumpkin. All the kids will get to choose a pumpkin, a gourd and an ornamental corn to take home. However, we will be keeping the pumpkins at school for a few days for math activities: weighing, measure, counting and comparing.   

We are going to rely on you, our wonderful parent chaperones to get us there. Many thanks to those of you that have already volunteered to drive. If you are interested in being a driver, please note as much on the permission slip (that went home Wednesday) or contact us via email.

Curriculum Sharing Tuesday Evening
Get a glimpse into your child's day at curriculum sharing. The classroom is open and your child is giving the guided tour! Please stop by between 3:15 and 4:15 or in the evening between 6:30 and 7:30. We look forward to seeing you there!
