It is April already! And this snow won’t stop! It is amazing to me how fast the school year passes by! Can you believe that there are only 3 months left for kindergarten? This month we will be performing a Kindergarten musical on April 12th at 2:00. Be sure to come see your child perform! It is so cute and our students have been working hard to make this a great show. We will also have a cast party in our classroom to celebrate all the students’ hard work.
Also this month, parents and family members are invited to help spruce up our school grounds in honor of Earth Day. On Friday, April 27th at 11:00-11:30 (rain date is April 30th), Our class will participate in the Beautification Day activities. A separate flyer will go home with the specific time and location for our class. Parents and family members are welcome to attend. Please bring in your gardening tools and help us tidy up our school yard. In the past, some parents have donated annual plants/flowers to be planted by the students in our gardens. Donations can be sent in with your child on Thursday or Friday of that week. Inside, we will plant some seeds in small groups.
