Good Morning! I am missing LOTS of eggs for our egg hunt. They are due tomorrow. Please send 6 plastic eggs filled with trinkets, no candy, taped with your child's name on them. Thank you. Also we will be hunting for eggs at 2:00 on Thursday and if you want to come. I need to know by tomorrow if you are coming to turn your name into the office.
Homework folders will be coming home today with books from my personal library again. Please have your child read and sign the Take Home Reader form in the binder.
We are working on our Music program. If your child wanted a speaking/ singing part their lines are in their green folder. If you could please practice these at home we would appreciate it. Also be thinking of an easy woodland animal costume for your child. If your child needs to be a specific animal we will let you know. More information will be coming home soon!
Have a great week... we will too! Remember we are off on Friday.
Remember library books on Wednesday. Also Tuesday, Thursday and Friday are our PE days so please wear your tennis shoes.
