Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):
HAPPY SPRING BREAK to everyone. Enjoy your week off before the final stretch. We have a lot going on once we get back until the end of the year so rest up. In science we will be doing robotics when we return, we have several presentations on bullying and abuse prevention during wellness week, and not to mention the field trips planned for May. I forgot to also mention that we will be doing astronomy as well. OUT OF THIS WORLD!
This last week has been spirit week and the students have had the following themes; mismatch day, twin day, sports day, and hat day. Go to the pictures page on the website and check out what some students did for those days.
Thanks to everyone for checking on Skyward so far. We only have two families that still need to check. Also, thank you for being so prompt with sending back the permission slips for the field trips.
Thursday, April 19th will be parent night at Fox River. Please make sure you attend to get the information needed for next year. For more information go to the Fox River website.
That’s all for now. Happy Easter, Passover, and OPENING DAY FOR THE BREWERS!
