SeeSaw Sign Ups
I'm so excited to start using Seesaw!!! On Monday you will receive a note with a unique sign up to see your child's journal. Please sign up as quick as possible! Your baby will be able to share pictures, videos, and audio of work they are doing in class! This new tool is used to share what we're learning in class. Your child will have his or her own learning journal, and you can get notified when your child adds new items. It's completely private -- only you can see your child's journal outside of class. -- Signing up takes just 30 seconds! -- Once you sign up, you can download the Seesaw Parent app for iPhone or Android, or access your child's journal on the web. Thanks!
Wednesday is Ice Cream Days:
Optional ice cream sales are on Wednesday for $1. Order forms will come home Monday.

100th Day of School
Oh My Goodness!!! This "old" people are precious! I was super sad to miss the 100th Day of School, but Ms. Gray said that had a fabulous day!
Donuts with Dad
We were so excited to have so many "tall guys", as my kids put it, in the classroom Friday morning! Here they are all working together on a Donut Art Activity and enjoying donuts!
All the dads and granddads were such great sports and did the kid's favorite, The Dinosaur Stomp. The kids talked about it all day!
