This week in 104

We planted more seeds they are growing. We have small and big saplings. We have to give them water every day and keep them in the sun.

We have been measuring things. We looked at height and weight and you can even measure time!

On Monday we had a jump rope for heart assembly, the lady told us we could win prizes if we raise money for heart research.

We loved today's pizza lunch. This afternoon the librarian from Amesbury came to visit and she read us a funny story called "Moo".

have a good week

from Team 104

Information and Reminders!

  • On May 3rd Joyce P.S. is hosting a free family science night. It looks like a lot of fun. There are 4 wonderful activities to choose from. It will be a lovely way to spend time with your child. Please see the flyer that came home today for more information and send the completed form back to school by April 26th if you would like to attend.
  • Wednesday, April 13th is International Day of Pink. On this day everyone is encouraged to wear pink to stand up to bullies and celebrate diversity.
  • We WILL NOT change Library books this coming week. Please keep the book and enjoy reading it together. A few families have NOT returned their books for a long time. If this is you please spend some time looking for the book this weekend so we can get you back on track. READING IS FUN!!!
  • Thank you to the students that are remembering to bring their mailbags back to school every day. We never know when we will have notes etc. to send home so please make sure the bag is sent in EVERY day.
  • Poetry Folders come home every Friday, please have fun reading the poems/songs together. Make sure the folders come back to school in the mailbag on Monday so we can add the new page.
  • REMINDER: we go outside every day so please make sure your child has clothes suitable for the weather at school every day.
  • Many of the children have the same or very similar clothing and they do not always know which items belong to them. This is taking up a lot of our time and causing some upset feelings. Please, please help us out by making sure that all removable clothing has your child's name written on the inside label. Thank you.
