Field Trip: We will be going on a field trip to the Tree People with the first and second grade class on Wednesday, March 11. An email was sent to all the parents about filming that will occur while we are at the Tree People. A consent form was sent home last Friday to allow the students to participate in the filming. We will be leaving school at 9:15 and returning at approximately 12. Students will wear their spirit uniforms. Students are asked to bring a low to zero waste lunch in a canvas bag or lunchbox. We will also need parent volunteers. Please let me or our room moms know if you will be able to help chaperone.

Dr. Seuss Week: We all had so much fun celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday last week! I’ve added some pictures from Fun Friday to the end of this post. We read the book Bartholomew and the Oobleck. All the students got to take home some Oobleck.
