Mrs. Brandt's Comment Challenge: What is the part of your body that collects sound and sends it to your brain?
Thank you to Ms. Z who taught for me today while I got caught up on work with school computers.
The children started the day with their weekly review, which will be coming home in their backpacks. This tells what are the best characteristics of a friend and shows you the work we have done with calendars this week.
Next they went to Gym and played Bench Ball.
After gym they watched a video while enjoying their snack.
Then the students finished up their Freedom art and math corrections on their calendar work from yesterday. These should also be coming home today.
Thank you to those parents that have returned field trip forms and have paid for the trip. This year is a bit different than last where we will be collecting for each field trip as we go. The fee sheet was sent home to remind parents of all fees that are available to pay on line. The recorder is just on there for later in the year when the students study recorder in music. This is an optional expense.
