Homecoming . . . 

Homecoming week was so fun with dressing up in pajamas, jerseys, hats, class colors and blue & gold!  Thanks to those who helped out by donating money or purchasing ice cream, t-shirts, etc for the Harberts family from Blooming Prairie.  Our school raised over $1,000! Here are a few pics from our week:

MONARCH BUTTERFLIES

We have learned about life cycle of butterflies. We have released two butterflies & have one chrysalis left in our room.  Below is a cool video of the monarch’s life cycle….enjoy!  This week we will await our final butterfly hatch and learn about other cycles . . . like the seasons!

 Life in our Classroom!

We had one butterfly emerge in our classroom just after our hike in the nature center . . . and just in time before we went home!

Below is Ms. Akkerman and the class with our new friend:

Reminder to Parents:

BREAKFAST is served daily (Kindergarten students are free!) EXCEPT late start Mondays, which is the first Monday of each month. We will have someone bring the Kindergartners to breakfast at 8:00 every morning until the students learn the routine and are able to do this independently.
