Dear Families,

 

Camera, Lights, Action!  Our play will be on Thursday night at 6:00 pm in the large gym.  Please have your child here by 5:45 pm.  The play is approximately an hour long.  If you have something that would help your child dress their part feel free to.  Please do not buy anything.  If your child has a main part or a reading part please practice this week since the countdown is on.  If you have any questions please contact us.  Please meander down the hallway also to see the students triptychs hanging in the corridor.  They are amazing kids you have!

 

On Friday we will be going to KFC to have a meal together and be thankful for our time together so far this year.  Afterwards, we will be going to Belleview Christian School (outside only) to look at the Castle Walls.  We are studying materials engineering and will be looking at the mortar, layout, and lines of it.  We will be using an app called photo grid also to take a picture.  We will also be taking a picture of them in royalty gear to add to their grid.  

 

Serving You,

Ms. Rooney and Mrs. Tennant
