News from Room 15
May 9-19, 2016
It's hard to believe that the school year is coming to an end in two weeks! I want to thank all of you for a wonderful year and wish you a safe and happy summer. Our last unit of the year will be about summer. Some activity highlights will be sorting beach items, painting fish, and writing our names on ice cream cones. We do have a few special activities coming up this week, so be sure to checkout the Duckling Dates and information below.
- Discovery with Dads has a huge success! I hope all the "dads" that were able to join us had a great time.
Have a great week!
~ Ms. Jackie, Mrs. Joyce, and Mrs. Ingle
