Audubon Elementary Newsletter

May 2016

From the Principal's Desk

May is a busy month at Audubon. We have concerts, art shows, picnics, field trips and more! We are learning a great deal from these experiences and continue our hard work in the classroom as well. Spring inspires us to write poetry about the beauty around us, to study the life cycle of butterflies and to create and explore with the use of math.

As spring kicks in, extra-curricular activities pick-up. Please be mindful of routines and bedtimes and how changes to both can impact your child during the school day. Remember the down time between activities is a perfect time for reading.

All the best,

Tara Ricci
