"A child reminds us that playtime is an essential part of our daily routine." -Anonymous
We will be starting a fun program during reading time. Ms. Amber will be working with the children using special thematic backpacks. We will use these 1-2 days a week to explore a variety of topics. Ms. Amber will also be helping the children with activities in the dramatic play area.
In preparation for the STAR testing in grades 2-5, Mrs. Sheard has shared a schedule that includes utilizing our classroom aides to help proctor the testing. During this time, I will be asking for extra parent support in the classroom and it would be a perfect time for the children to work on the Classroom Creations (quilt with Angela and art project with Greg) for the Silent Auction in May. I will send out a separate Sign-Up Genius for these times.
I am sending a big thank you to our wonderful Art Trek parents who enrich the children's art education with these special projects. We have been very lucky to have our art teachers work so beautifully with the children to create these lasting memories.
