Scholastic Book Fair
There is a family sing along Tuesday, April 9th at 6:00. Make a night of it and have dinner and shop with the family. Potato Shack is the restaurant of choice.
I do not have any books on my wish list this time. If you would like to donate a book to Ms. Russell's going away bag it would be appreciated. She will be certified elementary but unsure of a grade. Some great choices would be holiday books or nonfiction books. I encourage you to have your child write a note on the inside cover to share with Ms. Russell something that they have enjoyed while she has been with us. Her last day will be Tuesday, April 16th. We will have a simple thank you celebration with a special snack that afternoon.
Please do not tell your children I am leaving. I will do this in a class meeting the week before school is out. There is no need for them to know at this point.
If you would like to conference we will need to schedule those for during CAMP (10:30-11:15) or directly after school at 3:15.
Ants, Ants, and Less Ants!
The children are also working on an Ant project that will come home late next week. They are learning about the characteristics of insects as well as specific ant facts.
Also in the pot are other various flowers. Each student was able to choose an additional flower. There are some zenias, daisys, and sunflowers. They are slower to develop than the pumpkins but are good backup if the pumpkin plant did not survive the travel home.
