Just a few reminders for this week:

  1. There is a class trip tomorrow.  There will be no changes in arrival or dismissal times.
  2. Class 4-1 is discussing the option for a class pet.  I would like to get feedback regarding having a guinea pig for our class pet.  If any students have an allergy or any concerns with this choice as a pet, a fish will be considered as an alternate.  Please let me know if your child has any allergies or if you have any concerns at all about the guinea pig option please let me know. Thank you for your cooperation.  The guinea pig will need to go home on the weekends so this should also be taken into consideration.   Thank you,  Mrs. Iveagh
