The kids named him Boxer. He’s a pretty cute little guy, just a little noisy :)

Also, remember that Thursday is Field Day. Looks like it’s going to be very warm, so remember to send sunscreen and a hat. We will be outside most of the day!

Please have students bring one rock to school. Make sure that it can fit in their hands. We will be examining and sorting our rocks from home. This rock can be from a special vacation or simply from your backyard!
