Happy Birthday Alice!

  Today Alice turned the big 0-6. It was so nice having her parents stop by and read one of Alice's favorite books about birds.  We even got to hear a recording of a Loon.  Thanks Ed and Michelle!

Run For The Arts

We  ran for the Arts this past week.  It was the first time that I have run with Kindergartners and it completely wore me out.  Turns out your Kindergartner has a whole lot of energy!  Remember to get your donations collected by the end of the month.  

Congratulations To Talea, Our Student Of The Week

Way to go Talea!

Dressing For The Weather

Just a reminder that your Kindergartner goes outside everyday for recess.
As temperatures get colder, please help the dress for the weather.  We will make sure they stay bundled up.
