A few things...

Inventions- The inventions look great. The kids will work hard to finish them up this week. They will prepare a speech, business cards, poster, and an invention to display.


Scratch off Lottery Tickets- Thank you to everyone that donated lotto tickets or money for the classroom basket. Save the date for CRES Fest- Friday, April 28th!!!!


Spring Party- Thank you to all of the volunteers. The kids had so much fun making bird feeders, playing games, and dancing.


Eagle Creek Park Trip- Permission slips will go home tomorrow. Many people are interested in volunteering, but we can only take 5. If you already emailed me you are on a list. Make sure you have a background check and like to go outside and hike. We will be spending time outdoors and doing a little hiking in the woods. Please let me know by Friday if you are interested so that I can choose 5 parents from a hat. The trip is on Wednesday, May 3rd. We are going to learn about birds of prey, recycling for the birds, and migration.

Homework- A new log will come home tomorrow. I would like the kids to try and get a reading a-z to complete a book and quiz each night. This will help them to prepare for NWEA testing that is happening in about a month. IXL is great for a little math practice too.
