    Last week I sent an email and also sent home a form for a St. Patrick's Day-themed science activity. The form coming home on Monday notes the due date as March 17th, however this is actually a Sunday. Instead, the optional project is due on Thursday, March 14th as we will be on a Field Trip Friday the 15th. This is meant to be a fun extension at home and is completely optional for students!  Students are invited to present their projects to the class on the 14th.
  • As we come closer to the end of the second trimester, I am so proud of how far our class has come. They really have improved since the beginning of the year emotionally, socially, and academically. Our End of Trimester Awards Ceremony will be on Thursday, March 28th from 1:40-2:40pm in the upper school gym. Please remember that each child will receive an award at one of the three awards assemblies from me. I have emailed all of the parents receiving awards from me this trimester .
