I hope all of you had a great, fall break!! I know I did! The end of the quarter was Wednesday, October 15. Your child's "Progress Report" should come home with them today!
Our field trip to Zion National Park was amazing!! We now know where all of the bucks are hiding out, during the deer hunt! We saw five huge bucks, eight or so does, and a fawn! Other animals seen were: A Blue Heron, a group of turkeys, a squirrel, and a Big Horn Sheep! I personally felt like our class was on their best behavior, following all of the rules and regulations in a National Park!! Thank you for teaching your child respect and obedience!! The trip was very enjoyable, as well as educational! Thank you Lynnette Roundy for helping us on this field trip!!
The Frontier Homestead will be our next field trip! It will be on Friday, October 31! (Halloween) We can use your help with the centers that will be taught there! If you are able, and would like to participate, please let me know! We will leave by bus at 9:00. At noon we'll walk to the city park and eat lunch! After lunch we will walk back to the school, and share our "Mystery Book Reports!" It should be a great day!!
