Our Last Secret Reader, Our New Teacher

Today we had our very last secret reader of the year and it was Mrs. Cusimano!  She is the academic support teacher for all of the first grades at Academy School.  She read a very funny book titled Chester written and illustrated by Melanie Watt.  We enjoyed spending time with her!

A Great Day at the Memorial Park!

We had to wait a few extra days for our trip to the Memorial Park, but it was well worth it.  The weather Monday could not have been better.  Everyone had such a great time playing and enjoying our picnic lunches.  They were all tired on the walk back, but I was so proud of their strength and determination.  It was just a wonderful day!

We are at the Memorial Park!

Forever friends!

Planting in the Garden

Today we worked with our Academy School Garden intern, Sara, to plant cabbages in the garden.  Everyone had a chance to help dig in the soil and plant.  We are hoping that in the fall the cabbages will have grown really big in size!

Our Trip to Lilac Ridge Farm

Today we went to Lilac Ridge Farm and learned all about cows from Farmer Amanda and Rachael.  It was so much fun!  We learned about how cows make milk and how the milk gets from the cows to be made into a dairy product.  It was a great trip!
