It’s hard to believe that we have just over 3 weeks of school left. Everyone seems to be feeling it with a lot of excitement and anticipation! We thoroughly enjoyed participating in Tuesday’s Spring Sing concert and wrapping up our unit on Polar habitats this week.

Field Trip:

Friday, June 14th the first grade is headed to the Brackett’s Landing in Edmonds for a Ranger Beach Walk at low tide from about 9:00am-12:30pm. Permission slips were sent home today, please complete both sides and return Permission Slips by next Friday the 31st. Also, please remember not to buy hot lunch for that day- Friday, June 14th. Thanks!
