Chicks are coming!

We have collected enough money to participate in the wonderful program called “Rent-a-Coop.” For one month, we will have a cage, two baby chicks, an incubator and seven eggs. The children will watch the eggs develop and hatch. We will rent the coops from April 6 – May 4th.

A wonderful parent volunteer will be picking up the chicks and all equipment involved for all three first grade classrooms. Thank you!

The Swing by Robert Louis Stevenson

How do you like to go up in a swing,

Up in the air so blue?

Oh, I do think it the pleasantest

Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall,

Till I can see so wide,

Rivers and trees and cattle and all

Over the countryside-

Till I look down on the garden

Down on the roof so brown-

Up in the air I go flying again,

Up in the air and down!
