Puppets are Ready to Paint
We will start painting our puppets this week. If you have an hour to spare some morning this week, we could use some volunteers to help out. Please let me know.
It was so much fun to see the puppet outfits come in last week. Thank you all for putting so much love and care into helping your children! Stay tuned for puppet show information.

We are preparing for our solar system study. On Thursday, I will send home a calendar for your child to observe and sketch the moon each evening.
