Wall of Fame!

Come in and have a look at our "Wall Of Fame". See if you can spot us on it for having excellent work habbits.


Hi Parents and Caregivers, Last block today we went to the library. We love the library so much! It is fun to sit and read our books. Just a reminder to bring our library books back every wednesday so we can get a new book out. Thank you, Nikki

Orchard Visit at School!

Hi Parents and Caregivers, Today we visited the school orchard. We looked at the apple trees and the passionfruit vines. The apples were sour that we tried. We decided they need to keep ripening and stay out in the sun. We wrote a story about our visit to the orchard back in class. Thank you, Nikki
