A Note From Mrs. Waters

I received beautiful flowers from the class for my birthday. That was a wonderful surprise. Thank you so much. They are being enjoyed in my home.

On Tuesday, February 2 is Sports Day. Please make sure that your child wears sports clothes and a hat and brings a healthy snack and a water bottle. Also please put sunscreen on your child. They will be outside for a couple of hours during the day.

We will begin a new science unit next week, Plants and Animals: Form and Function. Please read the attached unit letter.
