April 14th – 17th

Good Morning Parents,

Spring is in the air!  It is so nice to be having some warm weather the last couple of days.  With this great weather the children will be going outside more often.  Please send your child with rubber boots and splash pants.  The playground this time of year is often very wet.

 

We are writing CAT’s this week in grade one and two. I have assigned spelling homework each night, but because of the CAT test we will not have our test until next week.

The school year is flying by and there are many things coming up in April and May that you should be aware of.
