Week of October 23 - 27

Hi Kinder Families! The children had an eventful week last week! We went on our first field trip to the Pumpkin Patch on Tuesday! We are incredibly grateful for all the support you have given us! Special thanks to our parent volunteers who drove and accompanied us to the Pumpkin Patch. On Wednesday, we had an Earthquake Drill and the children did a good job listening to instructions and practicing the safety procedures. On Friday, the Earth Rangers came to the school for a presentation! They brought different animals and gave us ways to protect them and all types of wildlife. This week, we are looking forward to doing some Pumpkin Science and meeting with you, parents, for our Three Way Conferences!
