Dear Parents and Families,
I hope that everyone had a wonderful Fall Break. My husband and I went camping both weekends around Arizona. During the week, I spent time with our friend from Australia and went to the Arizona Science Center. I was extremely impressed with their 3D Extreme Weather Movie. I hope everyone had a great time with their children during the break.
This week, I ordered a Grow-A-Frog for our classroom. I am hoping that it will come by the end of the week. I am not sure if I also mentioned that as an extension to our outside Diggs program that we are raising worms in our classroom. Anytime, you have compost you can send in to feed worms please send it in plastic ziplock baggies. The students love feeding the worms.
Thank you to all parents who have signed up for Parent-Teacher Conferences next week. If you have not done so yet please email or call me and we can get a time set up for next week.
I hope everyone has a great week and I hope to see some of you on Friday at the Dad's Club Movie Night at 6pm to see Moana.
