Salaamu Alaykum!

First & Second graders have been finishing work from our last unit and begun exciting new projects for our new unit, "Sharing the Planet" this week! We will be going on a field trip to the Renwick Gallery in Washington, D.C. next Wednesday, May 18th to explore a fantastic exhibit called "Wonder" which focuses on installations and sculptures made out of recycled materials. Kindergarteners will also be attending and we are all very excited to finally make our first field trip to an Art Gallery inshaAllah! :)

Wa Salaamu Alaykum,

Ms. Janjua
