Thank you to the Caudill, King, Inman, Aunchman, Prevatt, Beidle, Gallagher, Valla, Stein, and Fernandez families for donating to our classroom raised flower bed project!  It turned out BEAUTIFUL and wouldn’t have happened without your support!  I will keep you updated on the progress of our beds via website updates.   

A message from Isobel:  

Can you ask the kids to wear long sleeves and closed toe shoes for gardening classes on Monday?  (The mulch is a little scratchy until it sits for awhile). Hats, sunglasses, and gloves if they want.

Thank you to Tibor’s dad for being our morning mystery reader!  We enjoyed listening to your books “Dude” and “Flight.”    We also learned A LOT about planes and being a pilot for a private jet!  RAD, DUDE!  🙂

Thank you to Perry’s dad for being our afternoon mystery reader!  He read “I can be anything!” Jerry Spinelli .  We enjoyed discussing what we want to be when we grow up.  Best advice – DO WHAT YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT!  We also learned a lot about MOTORCYCLES!
