First Sea Otter News

We were some very busy first graders this week. We started the week with our Habitat Day, enjoyed buddy lunch and time with the 8th graders, and performed a dance for them at their farewell assembly. We created summer contract reminders in Parent Art (thanks to the Healy Family!) and explored the tide pools in Edmonds. We saw and learned a lot about sea life!

BIG THANK YOU to these fabulous chaperones:
