Breaking News!

Hooray! It's going to be a two-field-trip-week! Our Flynn Theater trip is Monday, and we now have a trip to the Burnham Library planned for Wednesday! 

Thank you to Hannah, the wonderful children's librarian at the Burnham Library, for being so flexible and accommodating! I called her this morning and she was excited to arrange a time for our class and Mrs. Hughes' class to visit. Our visit will take place this Wednesday, October 19th, from 12:00-1:00. We will leave soon after lunch recess ends at 11:45 and will walk to the library. We will walk rain or shine, so please help your child dress for the weather that day.

Currently, Mr. Antonicci's impressive tie collection is on display there, and we've been hoping to go visit to see the ties and to learn more about our wonderful public library. Children will view the tie collection, do a scavenger hunt, listen to Hannah read a story, take a library tour, and receive an application for a library card (which will be sent home that day).

I have not yet shared this information with students, since it was just arranged this morning. Feel free to tell your child! If you would like to join us for the walk and visit, please do! When we return to school, children will go right to P.E. and we'll resume our day. Any and all are welcome, as long as you've completed the volunteer background check information which was sent home in August. Please let me know if you'd like to join us--you can send a note in the green folder OR send me an email: Thanks!

A permission slip for this trip will be sent home MONDAY. Please sign and return it ASAP. Thank you!

  1. Two field trips in one week?! I am jealous! The kids in Mrs. Sorenson's room sure are lucky! :)

    I love that site you have linked to your blog about drawing a stick man :) So cute! I think my kids would love it, too! I will have to share it with them! Thanks for sharing it with me! Did you try yet? Mrs. G (Mrs. Sorenson's teacher friend in Michigan)
