Mother's Day Tea:
Thank you for all who attended!  The kiddos loved having tea with 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:
Our ducks went to a great home on Wednesday!  We enjoyed having them!
