Week of 4/7/15

This and That...

Happy Spring! It has been so wonderful to have the kids out the past few days. It looks like it ws short lived though and the rest of the week - not so good. Ahh- enjoy it while you can!

I hope everyone enjoyed their spring break! It was a great week to recharge and be ready for the rest school year. Can you believe there are only 45 days of school left? The year has flown by! We still have a lot of work to do though.

It was a pleasure seeing all of you at conferences before break. If at anytime you have other questions or concerns, as always feel free to contact me.

Mr. Joe - the Science guy - was here today!! What a great time the children had learning about the states of matter. Make sure you ask them about all that they learned.

Don't forget the JDRF walk is tomorrow with a rain date of Friday. Please send your envelope with you child.
