Ms. Schmidt's Classroom News
May 15, 2016
On Monday, we will be walking to the Concord Library @8:45. We will be taking a tour, learning about their summer reading program, and listening to a few books read to us by their AWESOME librarians.
On Tuesday, we will be walking to the Farmer's Market at Rotary Square. We will be learning about local farms and healthy food choices. Students may bring up to $5 to spend at the farmers market. This is a great real world learning opportunity for our students to learn about budgeting, purchasing, and calculating change.
Please remind your child to be on their best behavior and to listen to the substitute.
