On Thursday, we wrapped up our study of poetry with National Poem in Your Pocket Day. The children enjoyed reading their poem to many different people around our building and to each other. Be sure to see the Gallery for all the photos! Be sure to stop by the classroom and see the lovely display of the children's heart maps that they used to inspire poetry writing.
On Friday, we will walk over to the Historic Campus to visit the LabArts display and watch the High School performance of Fractured Fairy Tales. The weather is forecasted for mid 50s and possible rain so please make sure your child is dressed accordingly.

We hope that you have had time to think about a pioneer costume for you child. We would like all children to bring their costumes to school on Monday, May 2nd for our first Pioneer Day! They as mentioned in previous newsletters, we have bonnets for girls to borrow and will have some straw hats and suspenders for the boys. Again, most items can be found at home. Be creative! Thank you for your cooperation. We'd like these clothing items to be left at school so we can dress up a few times before the end of the year. Be sure your child has other school clothes to change into.
Girls: Simple, long sleeved dresses/skirts, straw sun hats or bonnets, aprons
Boys: Long shorts (khaki or a dark, solid color - not athletic pants!), dark black or blue pants or jeans, button-up long sleeve shirts in solid or plaid, bandanas
