Dear Families,

May has been a busy month! Thank you, to all of our wonderful parents who came with us to the Discovery Museum. We can't do trips like those without you! We also wrapped up Art in Action for the year. The kids got to make their own art books, reflect on some of their favorite projects, and glaze their animal sculptures. I would like to say a BIG "Thank you!" to our dedicated Art in Action volunteers! 

As we approach the end of the year, we are continuing to work hard within our daily routine, while also working on some special projects, like our end of year musical.  There is no more spelling homework for the year and I encourage you to look at the activities list below, if you would like extra activities for home. I'm looking forward to a great end of the year!                                 

Sincerely,

Callie Cain
