Field Trip

Our field trip to the McCloud Nature Park is this Wednesday. Your child will need a sack lunch if you chose to not buy one from the school. Please check the weather - we will be outside for most of the day and want to be dressed appropriately. We also recommend bringing a hat and bug spray!

10 Day Balloon Pop

We are counting down the days left of school with a daily balloon pop. At the end of each day, we pop a balloon that has a note written in it. The note describes an activity or dress-up day for the following day. I will send home reminders for any dress-up days/bring in items.
