April News

I hope everyone had a wonderful spring break! We have a very busy two months ahead as the school year is coming to a close. I am so proud of all of the hard work students put into their published books before break. I know you will enjoy reading the final publications in May.

Students are also about to embark on their Flat Stanley Projects, so if you have not sent an address in yet, please do so as soon as possible. Students love being able to learn about other parts of the world and see their creation exploring fun places.

We also have some new class guests since break. We are watching the Life Cycle of a Butterfly in our very own window seal and the students are truly enjoying documenting the changes each day.
