Music Magic

Our trip to the Meyerhoff Symphony was wonderful. The children had a terrific time as they listened to the songs and viewed pictures of America. It was such an exciting time for everyone. Thank you to all the parents that joined us. Our next field trip is scheduled for May; we will go to the Howard County Nature Conservancy. Details to follow after spring break.

MSA

Next month on Monday and Tuesday March 3rd and 4th as well as March 11th and 12th your children will be taking the Maryland State Assessment. We ask that during this time they get plenty of rest; an early bedtime is always a good thing. Also please give them time to eat a healthy and filling breakfast each day, as testing time is in the morning and their lunch time will be adjusted.
