Overnight Camp: We have just received our dates for our annual 2nd – 6th grade camping trip.  We will leave on Tuesday, May 22nd and return on Wednesday, May 23rd.  All parents are strongly encouraged to attend the parent meeting on Wednesday, March 28th from 7:00-7:30 pm in the upstairs elementary classroom. Parents will receive all camp paperwork, detailed information and have the opportunity to ask questions at this meeting.  Students are welcome to attend this meeting.  Only 2nd through 6th grade students are able to attend this trip, but don’t worry – it is an annual event.  All 1st years will have the opportunity to travel with us next spring.  Ms. Lori and Ms. Melissa will have special activities for our 1st year friends during those two days.

March Field trips: March 15 – Kelsey Fox, a local author, will be meeting with our elementary community along with our Kindergarten friends for an assembly.  The students will be walking through the writing process with Ms. Fox while they create a story of their own.  This is an in school experience.

March 29 – We will be visiting the Detroit Institute of Art to explore African art.  We will leave the building at 8:30 am and return at 3:00 pm.  The students will be served pizza and salad with water in the DIA cafeteria.  After lunch, the students will have the opportunity to create some art of their own.

Spring Break: I am going on a cruise over spring break and will not be back in Michigan until April 9th.  I will return to class on Tuesday, April 10th.  School resumes on Monday and Parker, Lori and Melissa will be back on that day – but if you would prefer to extend your spring break, feel free to do so.
