Units of Study

Our units of study for this month will be Spring and Summer. Your children have all ready been learning the life cycles of butterflies and ladybugs. We will also will be learning the life cycle of seeds and will be planting bean and carrots seeds so that we can watch them sprout. We will have a campground set up for the rest of the month for the children to go camping. We are also working on transitioning to kindergarten. We will be visiting the kindergarten classrooms, going through the lunch line to show them how they will be getting their lunches along with visiting the library.

Important dates for May

Our last parent meeting will be on Thursday May 12th at 6:00.

We will be closed on Thursday May 26th for a planning day and Monday May 30th for Memorial Day.

The last day for the children in class will be Tuesday May 31st.

Final home visit

As the school year is ending we need to do one final conference. More information about dates and times will be sent out soon.

We need your input

As a class we get a $3.50 per child to make a keepsake for your child. In years past we make t-shirts with all the children's hand prints on them. If this is what you would like please sign and return the permission slip on the next page so that we can start making them.
