Hooray for spring! We are finally seeing some sunshine and warmer weather. With the change in temperature, it's fun to change what we wear to school. Shorts, t-shirts, and sandals are much more comfortable to wear at this time of year. If your child wears sandals, flip-flops or other open-toed shoes to school though, they will be asked to stay on the blacktop at recess time. They may not play on swings, or climbing equipment due to the safety hazard of getting toes caught in the play structures. They will also not be permitted to participate in PE. We have had one injury so far this year. So, it would be best to continue wearing safe, close-toed shoes to school to be able to fully participate in recess and PE.
Students chose their teams for our new seating arrangement. They worked together to create a team poster, and participated in a team building activity each morning. This is yet another way to build community and friendships in our classroom. Our next reading lesson will focus on a story about friendship as well.
Flat Stanley will be coming home with your child for Spring Break. Look for him on Friday.
