June updates!

Happy June everyone! I can't believe there's only a month left!! It's a super busy month! We're deep into our nonfiction writing and working on lots of things in preparation for stepping up and for first grade.

Today is National Running Day! Afterschool, our principal, Mr. Groff and fellow teachers Mr. Andy (PreK), Ms. Tauntonico (2nd grade), Ms. Mark (Science), Mr. L (Science) and Mr. Woodburn (3rd grade).

The studio in the school art program is coming to an end. The art exhibition will be on Thursday, June 12th. I highly encourage everyone to come view the children's artwork. They worked really hard on it and their life sized portraits are remarkable! Here is just a snippet of their work--

In both reading and writing, we have been working on nonfiction books. In reading, students have been working on identifying different nonfiction features.
