We are going on our field trip tomorrow as planned. It is calling for light rain which is much better than what they were previously calling for. Please ensure your child brings an extra change of clothing, rain jacket and\or umbrella, rain boots and warm clothes.

 

We will be having a picnic as well for lunch, however it may be inside, so students are to bring a packed lunch as we will not be in the cafeteria.  

 

Also, at times flies can be quite plentiful on the island, so students can apply bug spray at home if they would like. I had an outside scavenger hunt planned as well for after lunch, however it will be postponed until next week.

 

It will be a fun day!

  2. June 14th: We are having our Field Trip this day and going to Beaubear's Island. It is calling for rain, so please dress your child accordingly as we will still be going if it does rain. I will be checking the weather throughout the week as it does tend to change daily. Also, please pack a lunch as we will be having a pic-nic either outside or in our classroom.
  3. June 20th-Potluck: To end the year, our class will be having a pot luck in our classroom! This will be on Wednesday, June 20th (last week of school). Students are invited to bring something that can be shared amongst their classmates. (Peanut-free) I will have a dessert to give the students and refreshments.
  4. We have been working on sun safety in the classroom, so each student received a bracelet that helps them know when the UV rays are strong outside, as the beads change colour.

* I hope you all have a great 2 weeks of school!
