This Week in Our Class

Classroom News

Welcome Back 

Welcome Back to school!  I hope you had a relaxing Spring Break.  
Thank you to all the families who attended our Open House back in March.  The students were so proud of their work!  Thank you for your support, as always.

  • Our field trip to the Olivas Adobe is on Friday.  Please be sure to dress in layers and bring an old towel.  Students should have their lunch in their lunch box or bag and their snack kept in a separate bag.  A little yellow reminder sheet will come home on Wednesday with more information.   
  • Return your Spring Pictures or money or both by this Friday. 
  • Look for our Gold Rush Day flyer coming home this week.  We need lots of help for this day!  Thank you!  Gold Rush Day will be on May 1st.
  • We are preparing for our play, which will be on May 6th! Students should be practicing and singing at home EVERY DAY!! I would appreciate your help with this!
