Notes From the Teacher
This week, I sent home permission slips for our bi-annual trip to the Art Institute in Chicago. Please fill out the permission slip as soon as possible and return it with your child. We can take as many chaperones as we want so if you want to take a ride into the city on the South Shore Train and the Mag Mile-please join us! :) Please send in CASH for this trip. Thank you!
The PTA read-a-thon ends this Wednesday, so keep reading!!
A big thank you to Mrs. King, Mrs. Noonan, and Mrs. Venit for volunteering to be our Taltree chaperones.
Each week our classroom news reporters, Kady and Sophia, will interview one student from the class. This week they choose Olivia Slagle.
