End of Year BBQ

Hi Everyone,

We have been asked to remind families about the end of the year BBQ.  If you are planning on attending and would like to eat lunch with your child, the lunch staff needs to get a final count to know how much food to order and make.  Forms to sign up for the BBQ went home in folders a couple of weeks ago and are due back with your order so they can prepare the right amount of food.


Thanks

Hope to see you all at the BBQ!

Fever

Hi Kindergarten Families,

I just wanted to make you aware that we have had an increase in student illness since returning from vacation.  Just this week we have had to send several students home early with a fever.  It starts off as a headache, and most of the kids have said that their stomach hurts.  They also look very tired and pale.  Eventually they spike a fever and often end up vomiting.  I want to make you all aware so if you notice any of these symptoms please keep them home.  We are airing out the classroom by opening the widows and cleaning the classroom several times throughout the day, but a different student seems to come down with whatever this is everyday.  We ended our week with 4 students out sick.  I hope all of you have a happy and healthy mother's day weekend!

Maple Sugaring Field Trip at the Audubon

Students enjoyed being outdoors in the cold and snow learning how to make maple syrup.  They learned how to find the right maple tree.  They learned how to  drill a hole in a tree to put in a tap, then hang a bucket with a cover to collect the sap.  They saw a big tank that holds all the sap that then goes into an evaporator to be boiled.  Student learned how they name the syrup based on color and taste.  We even got to taste tested the different kind of syrup and decide what kind we liked best. It was a cold but fun day for all!  Thank you so much to all the family members who were able to attend.














Hank Comes to Visit Kindergarten!

On Friday, March 9th, Hank the Therapy Dog came to visit our Kindergarten classroom.  The students learned all about how dogs have different jobs and roles in our community.  They learned that dogs help people by working with the police, firefighters, Emergency Responders, and people of all ages and abilities.  The students learned that Service Dogs have important jobs to do. It is important that we don't try to pet Service Dogs or distract them from their jobs. Therapy Dogs also have an important job.  These dogs go through special training to see how comfortable they are around different people.  A therapy dog helps to make people feel better.

Thank you so much to Mr. Evan and Hank for teaching us about how dogs can impact our lives in so many ways.  It was wonderful to have you both in class.  The students all loved having Hank be apart of our class,  he made us all feel better!  Check out the photos below from their visit.
