Thank you for sending in the Flat Stanley pictures and helping your child complete the Flat Stanley Travel Journal. I am so excited to put the package together for our penpals.
The Flat Stanley Project (the one your child sent off) is due Thursday. Thank you so much for all of your help with this project.
Field Trip Thursday
We are looking forward to our journey to The Butterfly Place on Thursday. Thank you so much to our parent chaperones. You will receive a separate email later with detailed instructions about the schedule for Thursday.
Speaking of butterflies, we have a plethora of Painted Ladies in our atrium in our classroom. These amazing creatures have emerged from their chrysalids and are flitting around their pavillion, sucking on clementines with their proboscis and getting stuck in the sugar water. This is fodder for endless fascination. And distraction, but a joyful one.
Farewell, Ms Wood
Lucky us to have had Ms. Rachael Wood this semester! She is a fantastic teacher and has done an unbelievable job taking over these last two weeks. We will bid a fond farewell to her on Thursday and wish her all the best as she embarks on what is sure to be an illustrious teaching career.
I'm going to the Morse Institute Library in Natick on TUESDAY of vacation week, not Wednesday, as I had written in the April Homework Calendar. Hope you can join me! If you can't, please consider bringing your child to the library one day over vacation week. Regular library visits are really important in creating life-long reading habits. Click here to read a great Huffington Post article about public libraries. As an added bonus, I consider patronizing public libraries a critical practice in today's uncertain political climate. Bastions of learning and literacy and art like libraries need our support.
Talent Show Superstars
Congratulations to Maereg, Elle, Skyler, Alyssa, Sawyer, Noah, and all of the other fabulous Happy Hollow performers at the Talent Show. It was awesome!
