Updates

We have several things going on that you need to know about.

First, tomorrow, 10/28/20, will be a virtual learning day. Students should be bringing their Chromebooks home tonight.

Report cards were to be mailed yesterday. If you don’t get one my Thursday, please let Mrs. Gardner or I know. We’ve started some virtual and telephone conferences but most will take place next Tuesday.

Finally, our Fall Party will be this Friday. Anything sent in must be store bought per school policy and for students with allergies so we can check labels. Unfortunately, we can not have parents come in and help. Also, please send in items by Thursday so Mrs. Gardner and I can shop Thursday night for Friday.

Thanks for all your help and support!!

Possible Last Day in Butterfly Garden until Spring

We will be going to the butterfly garden tomorrow from 1:15-2:00. We hope to see several Monarchs during their migration and other butterflies before a killing frost hits.

Please put bug spray on your child before they leave for school. Temps are to be in the upper 70’s, so if you think your child may need sunscreen, you can apply that too.

Thanks for all you do and have a great break with your child.

Butterfly Garden Today

Sorry for the late notice, but we will be going to the butterfly garden today. You may want to make sure that you put bug spray on your child before they leave.

This should be a great day for the garden with perfect temperatures and the Monarchs beginning their migration. We will NOT be doing virtual after lunch today. Those students can finish their projects, or go to Monarchwatch.org for research.

Butterfly Garden/Seeds

We will be going to the butterfly garden on Friday, weather permitting. You may want to put sunscreen and bug spray on them before leaving.

This time of year we are busy collecting seeds for next year. We are mainly just collecting from new perennial plants that we just put in the ground last year. If you would like some Purple Coneflower seeds, please let me know. Also, if you have access to seeds that you know are native to this area, host or nectar plants for butterflies, the seeds are perennials, and you would like to share, please email me.

Thanks,

Scott Burch

Dear Parent(s),

Weather permitting, we will be going to the butterfly garden Friday at 1:15.  Unfortunately, we are not able to have volunteers or guests at this time.  Please spray your child with bug spray.  You may also want to consider sunscreen and make sure that they have a water bottle with their name on it.

We will try to take pictures for our virtual learners and we will have an alternative lesson that they can do on Friday afternoon.

They will also need to take their Chromebooks home on Thursday AND be sure to bring them back to school on Monday.
