Endangered Animals Research and Coin Drive! The students have been doing an amazing job so far on their research! The packets sent home before Spring Break were due today. We will be continuing our research at school. Our final projects will be on display on April 20th (Field Trip Friday) from 3:00-3:25pm in the cafeteria. Families are welcome to attend! Students in our class have become very interested in helping save the endangered animals, so we brainstormed with the class and came up with a coin drive. Starting tomorrow until April 30th, we will have a jar outside the office to collect donations for the World Wildlife Fund. Some students suggested having bake sales and lemonade stands. I told them they are more then welcome to ask their parents about this and bring any money they make to the coin drive. Thank you for all your help. This coin drive is 100% student led and created!
Spring Music Concert The spring Music concert is next week on Thursday, April 12th! Students will have a practice concert during school hours (1:00 at Camp Withycombe) and then the evening concert will be at 6:30pm at Camp Withycombe. For the evening performance, your child may wear uniform or Black slacks with a black or white collared shirt, Black knee length or longer skirt with a black or white collared shirt, Black dress that is knee length or longer with short or long sleeves. Please arrive by 5:45. Every adult in the car needs a valid photo ID to show at the gate (not just the driver, every adult in the car). Thank you for supporting our music program!
