The school is having a spirit day this Friday, April 11, 2014. The idea of the day is to match another person or group of people. We have the event covered in Kindergarten. Just dress your child in a white shirt and blue jeans and we'll take care of the rest. It should be a fun day!
The deadline for Scholastic Book Orders is April 11, 2014. Thank you for supporting this valuable program!
Easter is coming up and we will be dip dyeing eggs to celebrate. Mr. Crisp's class will join us. We need helpers for this activity on Tuesday April 15th from10:30- 12:00. Please Let Miss Gold or Mr. Adams know if you are able to come and help out with this. It should be fun!
Ms Gold and Ms Filgate finish their practicums next week. With early dismissal later in the week (see below) we thought we'd hold a goodbye and congratulations reception on Tuesday, April 15th beginning at 1:30. Everyone is welcome to attend. If you'd like to provide a goodie to share, please contact Mr. Adams
As you may recall, the Kindergarten classes held an Open House in February as part of the assessment and reporting process. As a result, we will not hold parent teacher interviews next week. Students will still be dismissed early at 12:04 on April 16 and 17, 2014. Thank you.
All of the Kindergarten classes will join together for an Easter egg hunt on Thursday, April 17, 2014. We need some volunteers to sort and hide eggs in the morning so we can start the hunt right after recess. Please let Mr. Adams know if you would like to help. Everyone can help by sending a small bag of wrapped candies to school. These will be shared between the classes during the event.
Please be reminded there is no school on April 18 and April 21. I hope you get to enjoy some fun family time!
The salmon continue to develop. We are waiting for them to get hungry enough to swim out from their hiding place in the rocks. They will learn to float and swim and we anticipate they will be ready to release in a few weeks. The fieldtrip to release salmon has been scheduled for May 6, 2014. Everyone is invited and the day is much like our fieldtrip in the fall: some science, some hiking, some campfire cooking, some smores, and a whole lot of fun! Mr. Crisp's class is coming with us and we'll need lots of volunteers to make the day work. Please visit the salmon release page on the website or contact Alicia Wilkinson at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can help.
A big thanks to everyone who participated in the survey. It will be open until April 17th, so if you would like a chance to participate you can access it through this web page or by clicking on this link. Early results are very informative. The final ones will be shared with you soon.
Tundra the Wolf came to visit us last week. As a spokeswolf for Who Speaks for Wolf she works with her handler Gary Allan to spread the message about the importance of keystone species in the protection of our natural environment. She is amazing; and how often do you get to pet such a powerfully gentle animal?
