Hello all, what a gorgeous afternoon! A few things of note...
* Read Aloud- https://www.youtube.
This book is about Jane Goodall when she was young and how her dreams of going to Africa to take care of animals became true! It is a great one for budding animal and environmental lovers out there! At the end, Jane writes a quick note to kids encouraging local action! Listening to this story might motivate some research about Dr. Goodall!
* Kindergarten in the Fall...do you know anyone who has a kindergartner planning on starting school in the Fall? If so, please encourage them to register for school here- https://www.pps.net/
* Our VESTAL parade will be THIS Thursday in the sunshine AT high noon (12:00). Please join us...last time felt so wonderful to feel a sense of our community together!
Alright, so hope everyone is healthy and peaceful; love to see you Thursday!
Hello all and happy Thursday!
Just a reminder that this is a 4 day weekend coming up due to our Furlough Friday and Memorial Day. Of course, your child may continue to access learning on their google classroom or Seesaw site, but teachers will not be posting anything new.
Also a reminder that we are NOT doing the parade today...we moved it to NEXT Thursday, when it is supposed to be hot and sunny!
Here is today's read aloud--- https://www.youtube.
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy..it sure feels like it has been a long,long time at home. Hang in there!
Vestal Peace, Sabrina Flamoe
