Weekly News: April 25 - 29

April 25 - April 29

We are very excited to introduce our new class pets for the next few weeks: caterpillars! We will have the opportunity to watch their metamorphosis as they change from caterpillar, to chrysalis, to butterfly!

The kids did a GREAT job on Thursday performing their Earth Day fluency readings. 

Save the Date:We will be having a Mother's Day celebration on Friday, May 6 from 11:00-12:30. More information to come. I wanted to let you know early in case you need to take the time off work or find childcare for little ones. The School Childcare fills up quickly on this day and is on a first come first serve basis.  If you have alternative childcare this is a good day to use it.  Please understand that our classroom will be VERY CROWDED on this day!  It is a special celebration for moms and their kindergarten student.  For this reason we are unable to accommodate siblings in the classroom on this day.  Thank you in advance for your understanding.  This is SUCH a special celebration and we hope all of you mommies are able to make it!

IT'S TIME! Community Service Projects are due and will be presented NEXT WEEK!  Please send projects in Monday through Thursday (May 2nd - May 5th).   

Please remember that your community service project is a required part of our curriculum at Inland Leaders.  I look forward to seeing all of the projects.

The Apex Fun Run is Wednesday.  Every child will participate in the run so please have your child wear appropriate clothing and shoes on this day.  Thank you!! 

ILCS family fun night is Thursday, 4/28 on the field at CSC.  Come and meet the Apex Team and participate in some fun activities with the kids, enjoy electives performances, and some awesome cooking demos.  The fun begins at 3:00.

Writing: We will have a very special writing project that we are working on this week in class.
