We started off the month with Spring Break - which everyone enjoyed - but were happy to get back to school. The Easter Egg Hunt was alot of fun. The children enjoyed hunting for eggs and bringing them home in their goody bags. Thank you to all parents that helped out or sent special treats in.
Mr. Chris came to school to teach the children about music played during sporting events and tropical island music. We formed lines and went under the limbo stick. Everyone enjoyed doing the limbo dance.
Earth day was celebrated by learning about recycling and how to keep the environment beautiful and clean. The children helped to do that by cleaning up the outside playground and yard. They also learned the motto "do not litter" and what it means not to litter.
