Under the Sea will be our theme during the week of August 14.

We would like to thank Jenn Spehar for her generous donation of games, books, markers for each classroom and dry erase boards with markers. The classes are enjoying reading the books brought in by Theresa Comins. Thank you Erica Zuniga for the legos and tools, the students love using them on the playground. We are grateful to Janna George for the paper bags. They’ll be perfect for classroom projects. We appreciate all the thoughtful donations!
We’re in need of plastic garbage bags for sending home wet clothes when a child has a potty accident. If you have an extra supply at home that you can part with, please drop them off at school. Thank you!
We’re having Pajama Day on Wednesday, August 2 and Thursday, August 3! Please send your child to school wearing his or her favorite pair of pajamas
We’d like to give a special thank you to Vanessa and Tizoc Ceballos for sharing their musical talent in Room 6 during music appreciation week. Vanessa and Tizoc brought in a guitar and trumpet while their son, Sean, showed his classmates how to play the pocket trumpet!
