Spring Concert

This Tuesday, May 24th our class will sing a song in the Spring Concert.  You are all invited to come.  The concert will be at 1pm in the auditorium.  For this day I am asking that you dress your child in a 1960's style.  The children will be singing a song from this era.  Hope to see you there.

Columbia Space Center Trip

   Our field trip to the Columbia Space Center has been confirmed.  We will be going on Friday May 27th.  It will only be our class.  As always, you are welcome to come along.  The museum charges $5 per adult.  By selling ice cream, we were able to make our goal and rent a bus for the trip!  Thank you parents for all your support as always.  The bus will be leaving the school at 8:45.  Please send your child with a backpack, lunch, and a drink.
