Happy Summer!

See you in August!

Our Last Read Aloud

Mr. Paciulli and Ms. O'Neill came in to read the book A Fine, Fine School by Sharon Creech. It is a great story that the kids LOVE!!  We are so happy that they came in every week to read to us!  We will miss Ms. O'Neill next year!

Sibling Secret Readers

Two siblings really wanted to be secret readers this year, so I thought it would be fun to have them both come in together and read to small groups.  It was so much fun!

Memorial Park Field Trip

We had a great trip to the Memorial Park today!  It was a beautiful sunny day with a very nice breeze. We had such fun playing on the structure, basketball and lots of other fun things.  We enjoyed our picnic lunches and had a fun time together.  We all had such a great time!

Kindergarten Celebration Night

Last night we had a wonderful time celebrating our school year with all of our Kindergarten friends!  Everyone looked so cute and did a wonderful job singing for their parents!  Congratulations!

All dressed up before our big performance! 

Lilac Ridge Cow Trip

Today we went to Lilac Ridge Farm and learned all about cows from Farmer Amanda.  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!

Over the last two weeks we have finished up our secret readers for the year.  Thank you so much to everyone who took time away from their busy schedules to be a secret reader!  We loved having you come in to read to us!

Welcoming Back Our First Grade Readers

We welcomed back our former Kindergarteners (now BIG first graders) to come read to us!  They have done such a wonderful job in first grade and have learned so much!  They each were able to read to several Kindergarteners during this time. We ate snack together and at the end of their visit, we had a question and answer session about what life is like in first grade.  Some of the questions were... "Is it hard to be a first grader?", "What kinds of things do you do in first grade?" and "Do you like to read?" It was so great to have time with our first grade experts! 

Our Trip To Lilac Ridge

We had a great trip to Lilac Ridge Farm to work with Farmer Amanda.  It was a beautiful day! We had a chance to tour the farm stand and sample lots of different vegetables growing on the farm.  We brought back to school broccoli plants to take home. We had a wonderful time!

County Fair Day 2015

We had a fantastic time at the fifth annual County Fair Day!  There were so many things to see and do that I was unable to take pictures of everyone!  We are so proud of Mr. Paciulli for getting up in front of everyone and kissing a snake. He told everyone how scared he was of snakes, but that it is important to grow and learn by doing things that you are afraid of. Such a great lesson for the students!

Waiting for the circus to begin!
