Grandparent's Day was a huge success! The kids loved having visitors for lunch! The ones that didn't have someone to eat lunch with got to have a picnic outside during their lunch time under our pavilion!


Please see note that will be sent home on Monday about a "Pet Rock." Find and decorate a pet rock (no bigger than your child's hand) to bring to class. You may use whatever to decorate (markers, paint, yarn, wiggly eyes, etc. ) Just make sure it looks like a person, monster, creature, critter, animal, or insect and no words on it please. Pinterest has some cute ideas. Due on Wednesday. We will write about our pet rock this week. (What it likes to do, play, eat, etc.) Just sending this Friday, in case you want to start on this project over the weekend.
