Mother's Day Tea:
Don't forget our special Mother's Day Tea is this coming Friday.  We will see you in the cafeteria at the start of school.  Please park on the street this day so the teachers have spaces available to park their cars.  Thank you!

Sight Words:

Please be sure you are practicing your child's sight word lists daily.  There are some students that have not been bringing in sight words for testing.  When children do not master their sight words, they most often do not progress.  Please be sure to get new cards if you need them.  Just ask.  

Duck Eggs:
We are so excited to have 5 baby ducks!  It was a great hatch and everyone got to see at least one duck hatch from the egg!  We will have our ducks through Wednesday.  Feel free to stop in and see them!
