Field Trip Fun
We had a great experience on Tuesday visiting Hilbert Theatre for the ISO Discovery Concert. If you have not ever seen a show, I highly recommend a trip!
Please remember to send in those Box Tops with your child to school. We earn money that PTO uses to provide enrichment programs, resources, and more! Ask extended family members to keep them for you too.
We continue reading about the Civil War, and will use the knowledge we gain to create a classroom timeline, explore topics of personal interest, and work together to create a Civil War museum exhibit.
