Easter Party Reminder

Posted by bradleys | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on April 15, 2019

Parents,

Here are a few reminders about our Easter party!

  • Our party begins at 11:00 this Thursday, April 18th! We will hunt our Easter eggs first and then return to our classroom for refreshments.
  • Please send 24 fully taped eggs and a basket to school by Wednesday, April 17th. Make sure the candy inside the eggs is individually wrapped. Also, please do not send any peanut butter products.
  • Students can be signed out in the classroom if you choose to take your child home after the party.
  • I will send a reminder note home tomorrow of items to send in for the party.

I will have a sub in my room on the day of the party. I am on the interview committee for our new Primary Principal and the first round of interviews has been scheduled for that day. I am so sad that I will miss our party but am so thankful for all of the parents that have volunteered to help! Please take lots of pictures! I know the kids are going to have a lot of fun!

Mrs. Bradley

We helped make noise shakers that will be used at the Ladyneck softball game.

Our class voted to top our porridge with brown sugar and raisins. It was delicious.

This week we read, The Three Little Bears. On Friday, we made porridge and wrote a “How To” class chart.

We enjoyed writing about our zoo trip this week.

All of our caterpillars have formed their chrysalis. We have moved them into their butterfly house and are waiting patiently for the butterflies to emerge.

We practiced seeing others with loving eyes using our heart shaped glasses that we made! We will continue using the glasses this week to catch kind and helpful acts.

Our class is loving watching our caterpillars grow and change. We expect them to form their chrysalises this week.

Zoo Field Trip

Posted by bradleys | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on April 8, 2019

Our class is looking forward to our field trip to the zoo on Tuesday, April 9th.

  • On Tuesday, please send your child to school in a White Oak shirt and tennis shoes.
  • I will send home a labeled gallon size bag with your child tomorrow. Please pack their lunch in this bag.
  • Please send two water bottles labeled with your child’s name (no juice, it attracts bees at the zoo).

If you are going to meet us at the zoo, we encourage you to purchase your ticket online ahead of time. You will still have to go through the main entrance to get into the zoo, but if you purchase your ticket online you will not have to wait in a long line to get into the zoo. Many schools will be at the zoo on this day.

After you have entered the zoo, please walk through the zoo and meet our class by the group entrance (near the rhino’s). Thank you to all of the parents that have volunteered to help out at this field trip. I will divide our class into small groups to walk with parent volunteers. This makes navigating the zoo a lot easier.

We are going to have so much fun!
