Field trip on Wednesday

We are going on our field trip to the Maidu Museum on Wednesday.  We will be indoors and outdoors on a hike.  Please have your kiddos dress accordingly!  Please also make sure they bring their lunch in a brown paper bag!  Let's hope for no rain!

We are writing autobiographies!

Your kiddos should have brought home a paper asking you to tell them about when they were babies and a story about their childhood.  This paper should just have notes on it and should not be written in paragraph form (we are doing that in class).  Please help them fill out this form and return it to school by Tuesday when we will begin our writing.  Thanks for your support.  I have attached another copy in case the paper never made it home...

Thank You!

Wow!  I am feeling the love!  Thank you all so much for the gifts on this Valentine's Day!  Enjoy the evening with your family!

New Spelling

For the next several weeks we are going to focus on the most commonly misspelled words for our spelling list.  Please continue to help your child with their spelling activities throughout the week.  The test will be on Thursday due to the holiday on Friday. The following words are for next week.

Happy last week of school for 2017!

It is hard to believe that we only have one week left of school until we return in 2018!  I want to take a minute to thank all of you for entrusting your darling kiddos to me each and every day.  They are amazing and make me smile each day.  Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Thank you
