You can either ride the bus with us or meet us at the zoo. The fees are greatly discounted, so it can be a great way to visit the zoo. Any parents attending the zoo with us MUST have a completed background check. Please make sure you have completed this before joining us at the zoo! Let me know if you need forms!

PLEASE HELP YOUR CHILD SELECT THEIR POEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. WE WILL BEGIN PRACTICING READING THE POEMS THIS WEEK IN SCHOOL. PLEASE SEND A COPY OF THE POEM ONCE IT IS SELECTED SO THAT I MAY HELP THEM AT SCHOOL AS WELL.
We are loving Seesaw's digital portfolio. I hope you are enjoying seeing your child's work in real time as soon as it is posted. They LOVE to make you proud! Just to let you know I will be reviewing and marking work through Seesaw, not on the paper copy. This includes spelling tests. If they bring home a paper that is not marked/graded----check for it in Seesaw.
