Happy New Year!
We are excited to start the new year refreshed and ready to begin new lessons. We have begun our study of the timeline of life and the five kingdoms, and we are finishing our studies of Europe. Please review items below for upcoming events and field trips.
At the beginning of the year, the children created guidelines for our classroom to help create a calm, peaceful environment. Please review the guidelines with your child to help our community maintain a positive learning environment. The guidelines are listed below. We appreciate your assistance!

We use our materials respectfully.
We don’t interrupt people working.
Listen when others are talking.
We use our inside voices.
We don’t distract people when we are at group.
We keep our hands to ourselves.
Sit respectfully at group.
Do your math, reading, spelling and writing.
We practice self-awareness.
We listen to the teachers.
We care for our plants and animals.
