Whitaker Center Field Trip

Just a reminder that our field trip is this Friday, April 28th. Here are a few helpful tips!

  • All students should be here when the bell rings to attend our field trip.  We will be leaving right after announcements.
  • Each student should bring a completely disposable lunch. We will be throwing the lunch bag and everything else away once we finish lunch.
  • Your child should not bring any money or a camera. We will not be stopping at the gift shop.
  • Even though we will be going on the field trip, please send your child in with his/her backpack since we may have notes from the office to take home.

February STAR Party

This month our Star Party consisted of two fun things! First, all stars and rock stars were invited to wear pajamas and slippers for the day. Rock stars were also able to bring in a stuffed animal to carry with them during the day. At the end of the day the students also had time to play with each other and their stuffed animals. The students had a lot of fun with our February Star Party! We cannot wait for the March one!

I’m sure you have all heard by now, but…

I am sure you have all heard that our family is currently expecting twins! My expected due date is sometime in July. I just wanted to reiterate that this will not affect my current students at all. I plan on finishing the school year. The kiddos were very excited today when they found out. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions!
