April 24th-28th

Friday was a beautiful day to do math outside!

Field Trip On Thursday

On Thursday, we will be going on our field trip to the Lowry Nature Center. Students will need a disposable lunch. Hopefully it will be a beautiful, warm, sunny day, but if not students should dress for the weather. We usually recommend long pants (we walk through tall grasses where wood ticks are often found), layers on top (some times we are in the shade and other times in the sun), and sunblock (applied before coming to school). It is a great field trip, and the kids will have a lot of fun!
