The snow has gone and the wind has arrived! This spring has cer- tainly rushed in. Additionally, the year has certainly passed quickly! I am currently in the process of confirming dates and schedules for our year end trip to Blue Mountain Outdoor Adventure Park. So far, it looks like we will be heading out on June 19 (Friday). We plan to do some zip lining, high ropes activity, and team challenges that day. It is always a lot of fun for the kids and I am looking forward to it. I will be requiring 3 parent volunteers to join us. Please keep in mind all chaperones and volunteers must have a valid criminal records check submitted to the office prior to the event. Please keep an eye out for an information letter and volunteer request sheet to come home in the following weeks. Academically, we are current- ly studying circles and Meas- urement in math. In ELA, we have wrapped up our novel study and have begun to move onto a thematic unit called “Participating and Giving our Personal Best”. The students continue to look at ecosystems in science, and types of government in social studies. Report cards will be out in a couple of weeks. As always, should you have any questions or concerns re- garding your child’s progress, please feel free to contact any of your child’s teachers at the school.
