"Great Teachers empathize with kids, respect them, and believe that each one has something special than can be built upon"

-Ann Lieberman

Take a moment in the coming weeks to thank you child's teachers for all they do! We have a building full of happy, smiling children who love to be in school, and we have the teachers to thank for that..

Exploring our Earth

In this unit, students will engage in learning about the sun and moon and explore shadows and how they are formed. After students have a sense of their place in the world, they move to focusing on how to protect it. Students will learn about recycling and caring for their environment, including a focus in the ocean. Students will explore ocean animals and the beach habitat before leaving for summer break. Ask your child to share with you the stories below...
