Here we are, officially in the final month of the school year. We are excited that for the next two Fridays we get to spend the day talking to parents about the amazing year of growth their children have had! We want to have the chance to talk to all of our parents, so if you have not yet signed up for a conference please do so.
We had a great field trip last week to the Denver Aquarium. Thanks so much to the parents who came along with us to help chaperone groups of kids. It was a lot of fun, and the kids even got to spend some time learning about fish in our “Fabulous Fish” class.
We also had another cool experience last week when we got to explore the riparian habitat of Spring Creek with the help of Kari and some area naturalists. Who knew there were that many critters lurking just below the surface? This week in science and topic work we will continue to learn more about fish, amphibians, ponds and rivers.
As you all know we have Spring Clean up this Saturday from 9:00-1:00. We are really hoping that families come to help. We will not have childcare available but the kids can help out. Also, Brenda is offering a Literacy Night next Monday, May 8th from 5:00 to 6:00 at Rivendell. Please come and learn more about our literacy program and learn some fun and imaginative ways to help promote reading at home.
