February 27 – March 2

Next week, we will be having a regular five day week of school.   First thing on Monday morning, we will be leaving at 9am to go on our sleigh ride at Terpstra’s Sleigh Rides.   Remember that helmets are mandatory for the sledding hill.   Following the fresh snow expected this weekend, I expect the view will be spectacular.   If anyone would like to accompany us, we still have room for a few more.   Thank you to those parents who were able to rearrange their schedules to accompany the class as drivers and chaperones.

On Friday, we will be having our second skating time at Simmons Arena.   All students must be picked up at the rink by 2:30pm.

Please read the February 27-March 2 schedule for specific details pertaining to our class.
