Happy Birthday To:

No birthdays this month :)

Wow - only one more month of school!

Please enjoy all the photos below - they've showed all our fun activities in April!

Coming up in May, we will be B-U-S-Y!

  • We are finishing up our graduation books (a VERY special book you'll get to take home on graduation night that your child has been working on from the beginning of the year) so don't be surprised if there's only a few art pieces that get sent home in May. We've got to save a few more special pieces for our books.
  • We are busy with lots of "games" i.e. assessments! We can't believe how far our kiddos have come since the beginning of the year. We're compiling a final Progress Report so you can see how far your child has grown! What's awesome is that each of our students have had huge strides in all of their development, whether it's social, emotional, physical or cognitive. They're growing up so quick!
  • Mid May we'll be busy practicing our graduation songs, but we can't sing them for you - that's a secret! You'll have to come to the graduation to see us rockin' out on stage!
  • On that note, don't forget that we need parent helpers for our graduation please... please look in your payment packet for a form to fill out to let us know you can help.

Thank you for sharing your children with me this year! I have loved teaching them!

It took some time, but her courage and perseverance paid off and she finally fed the goat!

Speaking of courage, most are standing at a safe distance while one tries to catch the "spider with wings." It was very exciting!
