Dear Parents,

Happy Easter! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter with your families. As we head back to school on Monday, April 24th there will be a lot going on between now and the end of the school year. On Monday, we will walk to the Alameda Theater to see "Born in China" in honor of Earth Day. Also on Monday, students will be introduced to a long-term project called Market Day. Please make sure to read over the guidelines with your child and be aware of due dates. While this is an in class project, it is important students are prepared for when we work on it in class.

We are in need of creation station items - please send in any recyclable items from now until the end of the year if you have any! Thank you! :) 

Please make sure your child is coming to school with a morning recess snack.
