Author’s Celebration

Last week we celebrated finishing our Small Moments unit by holding an Author’s Tea.  We invited Ms. Jones fourth grade class to come and listen to our stories.  They joined us for butter biscuits and some great stories.  They really enjoyed sharing their stories with the older students!

Field Trip Tomorrow!

Remember to have your child wear closed-toed shoes and bring their lunch tomorrow!  We will be departing UAS at 10:00 and be arriving back around 11:40.  We will have lunch in the classroom when we return.  If you are coming along with us on the field trip, I look forward to see you tomorrow!

Halloween and Pumpkin Day!

Thank you for all the donations of candy, toys, and snacks.  All of the kids really enjoyed participating in the different activities.  Thank you to Mrs. Ozaki for coming in and assisting with some of the Halloween crafts!


After a four day weekend, the students came back to school on Tuesday ready to learn new information.  Tuesday was Pumpkin Day in 1KP.  The students inquired, measured, and learned new information about pumpkins all day Tuesday.

In our class pumpkin, we had 303 seeds!
