The Smencils have landed! On sale in the office!!!
"Yes, no, why?" assignment located after the vocabulary words at the bottom of this page on Thursday.
Our 3rd grade field trip to the Ocean Institute has been changed to the Aquarium of the Pacific because of the distance to the Ocean Institute. Still scheduled for June 5. We will only have to fundraise about $550-600 instead of $1200.
3rd grade also has a field trip scheduled for the Discovery Cube and 4th grade is going to the Mission in San Juan Capistrano as well as a Sacramento field trip.
More information to follow soon.
We will be collecting pennies, in the classroom, as one of our efforts to fund the Aquarium field trip. I found an old, glass, 5 gallon water bottle and thought it would be a good idea to try and fill it with pennies to help save for the field trip (if you can spare any pennies, please send them along). :) The bottle is about 1/4 full!!! Thank you to all who have donated. Keep 'em coming!
