If you did not make it to Speech night, you missed out on a wonderful evening. The Jr. Elementary students learned and recited a poem and the Sr. Elementary did speeches on people who made a difference in the world. Congratulations on a job well done.


We hope everybody has a nice break. We would like to thank the Smith family (Hudson) for bringing in chickens and the Bernard family (Alodie) for bringing in a horse for the children to feed and learn about. The children enjoyed both animals and being up close and able to use their senses of touch, sight, smell, and hearing. This month we will learn:
 Numbers
 The sounds “Xx”, “Oo”, and “Kk”.
We will learn about insects, flowers and birds.
