Wow, can you believe we are halfway through April?? I guess it’s hitting me hard because my babies are going to be 2 on Friday… how did that happen?? Well anyway, that is my reason I will not be here on Friday.

We have almost all field trip forms in and lots of parents, it’ll be a tight ride, but we are looking forward to it! Be sure to mark May 1st on your calendar.

Next week (April 23-26th) we will be celebrating Earth day/week. Earth day is actually that Monday, but the kiddos do not have school. We have some fun activities planned and one of them involves the students bringing in an old t-shirt. We are going up-cycle the tshirt and make it into a bag. So please send a shirt that we can cut and sew by April 25th! If you have puffy paint to donate we would love to decorate the bags as well!

During Earth week we will be starting a “fundraiser.” It’s also a recycling project. We will be collecting ink cartridges and small electronics (cell phones, mp3 players, ipods, headphones, etc.). Each item earns our school money! If your company is willing to donate items as well it would be much appreciated. The recycling company provides boxes and labels at no cost! We can actually get mailing labels for your company and they can send from there.
