Since we missed St. Patrick's Day, we will be celebrating this week by lots of fun centers and games, sharing our leprechaun traps, and reading and writing about catching leprechauns! We will also have a WEAR GREEN day on Thursday! :) Please bring in your leprechaun traps any day this week by Thursday - we will be trying to catch him on this day! 

We will also be celebrating spring and Easter with many fun centers and games on Friday. 

Electives and tutoring will begin again NEXT WEEK.

We will be going on a field trip next Friday, April 5th to the Children’s Museum of the Desert. This is sure to be an exciting “hands on” field trip.  We will be leaving school at 8:15 and returning at approximately 1:15. Mark your calendars and adjust 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.  We will be eating our “sack” lunches at the museum following the tour. Please pack your child a lunch in a paper bag.  No lunch boxes please. Permission slips will be sent home this week.  Please return ASAP. If you are interested in being a chaperone please let me know BY FRIDAY, as we need to give a head count!!!! Chaperones will be riding on the bus with our classes. Please remember that school policy states NO SIBLINGS. Thanks! We are looking forward to a wonderful field trip!
