Weekly News: March 31-April 3

News: 

Welcome back and happy spring! I hope you all had a wonderful spring break and enjoyed the time off with your families! I am going to be taking some extra Family Leave time with little Jackson these next two weeks, but I can't wait to see you all back at school on Tuesday, April 14th! Mrs. Beaucaire will be our substitute and I'm sure you will all have a fantastic time together!

Third trimester electives and Success Academy will begin this week on Tuesday, March 31st.

Our field trip to the Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert in Rancho Mirage is coming up on Tuesday, April 28th and it is sure to be an exciting “hands on” experience.  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. Permission slips will be sent home in the next week or so.  We will be eating our “sack” lunches at the museum following the tour. On this day, please pack your child a lunch in a paper bag.  No lunch boxes please. If you are interested in being a chaperone please let Mrs. Bess know BY FRIDAY APRIL 10TH VIA EMAIL (jcbess@inlandleaders.com), as we need to give a final head count! Chaperones will be riding on the bus with our classes and need to pay a small fee at the Museum (Approximately $4.00) Please remember that school policy states NO SIBLINGS. Thanks! We are looking forward to a wonderful field trip!
