Important Date & Event Notes:

What a wonderful time we had at the farm! We saw pig races and cows being milked. We fed the cows and at the petting zoo we held chicks and bunnies. We played at the playground and had a picnic lunch. After lunch we dug for fossils, got lost in a maze, played on the bouncy house and picked pumpkins off the vine in the patch. It was great fun for all! Thank you to the parents who went along to chaperone.

Please have your child read the reading homework book to you every night. When there is a new page it should be read at least 2 times. Please initial the bottom of the page each time it was read to you. This is a key part of your child becoming a fluent reader.
