We are getting excited about the upcoming music program. Remember to save the date for…


                    The Kindergarten Music Performance,

      Monday evening, May 22, 6:30-7:00

      In our school gymnasium


Please bring your child to class at 6:20 before you find your seat in the gym.


The Project Fair was quite a success. The children are very proud of their work. They are doing such a good job presenting it to their classmates. They are using strong voices and remembering to look at their audience after glancing at each note card. Very impressive deliveries. We are still collecting $2 for the project poster board, if you haven’t sent it. Also, there are a few fact cards that need to be returned.


The chicken eggs in our incubator are two weeks old. They are due to hatch in one more week.


The simple machine lesson was on wheels and axles. Shea had the kids building cars with Legos.


There have been gardening lessons that included planting seedlings.


We are beginning to learn about pollination. The children will be taking turns being pollinators, sipping nectar from flowers and spreading pollen as they go from one flower to the next. We are learning the poem “The Reason for a Flower” by Ruth Heller.


We have waited awhile for the sunny weather. Please apply sunscreen each morning and send a sun hat.
