Mrs. Finch's Class News

Vol. 1, Issue 22

Week of March 20th-25th, 2016

Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful Spring Break. It is a short week this week with a school holiday this Friday. Pictures with Chicks is Monday. If you wish for your child to participate and you did not already prepay, send $5 cash for each picture you wish to have with your child to school on this day. Pictures will be delivered to your child by Thursday, March 24th unless you opt for email delivery.


Thank you all for your support in the Barnyard Moosical. Everyone looked great in their costumes and they did a fantastic job on the farm. If you have pictures that you would like me to publish in the newsletter next week, please email them to me. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get any during the actual performances. I would also like to give a shout out to the moms who helped get us dressed for the school performance as this day was already a little crazy with the weather. A special thank you to Mrs. Nelson who had extra costume pieces on hand for the boys and girls who wished to use them or needed them for the performance.
