We are starting our Nutrition unit this week. We are excited to learn about the five food groups and how we can take care of our bodies.

Star of the Week…
We loved learning about Chase last week! Chase’s favorite color is green and his favorite animal is a cheetah. He wants to be a cop when he grows up. We are excited to learn about McKenna this week!

Don’t forget!
–Library days are Tuesday and Friday. Students will be checking out books this week but will leave them at school since books are due back to the library on May 10th.

We have so much to learn and look forward to this week as we get further into 4th quarter! Thanks for partnering with us to make this a successful year in Kindergarten!
