Dinosaur Museum

We will be finishing the research portion of the dinosaur project in class by Tuesday. The projects need to be completed and brought into school on the morning of Wednesday, May 11th. We will then set up a dinosaur museum on Thursday, May 12th for the whole school to visit. Families will be invited to our classroom the morning of Thursday, May 12th. A note stating specific times and details will be sent home prior to the museum. Thanks for your support with this project!

Field Trip

Forms and money need to be sent to school by May 6th. This includes money for parents who are attending. Adult fees for the Discovery Center are $6 and students are $3. There is limited space on this trip, no extra children. So far we have several parents wanting to attend. Seating will be limited as well. If anyone is willing to drive that would be great!
