Weekly News: April 1-5


News:

We had so much fun sharing our leprechaun traps and celebrating both St. Patrick's Day and Easter this week. 

Our field trip to the Children's Museum of the Desert is THIS FRIDAY! We will be leaving school around 8:15 and returning around 1:15. Please mark your calendars and adjust your schedules for the late pick up on this day and please note that your child will be missing any electives they may have on this day. PLEASE DO NOT BRING FOLDERS ON THIS DAY! We will be eating our "sack" lunches and the museum following our tour, so do not forget to send your child with a "brown-bag" lunch! Permission slips were sent home last week. Please return these ASAP if you have not already done so. Thank you to the chaperones that volunteered to go with us: Mrs. Proctor, Mr. and Mrs. Dixon, Mrs. Harper, Mrs. Thorig, Mrs. Greco, Mrs. Scherneck, Mrs. Pearson, Mrs. Fenton, and Mr. Joe! :)  Chaperones will be riding the bus with our classes. We are looking forward to a wonderful field trip!!!
