The field trip to the Exploratorium is tomorrow, Tuesday April 24th.  If you have not made the $15 donation yet, please have your student bring it in tomorrow.  If you did not pre-order a sack lunch from the cafeteria, please make sure your student brings a lunch.  If you are joining us as a chaperone, please sign in at the office and come to room C-9 by 8:45 a.m. for the list of students that will be in your group.  (We will transport lunches in tubs, so you do not need to bring a backpack.) 

Book orders will be due this Friday, April 27th.  

Today in class students prepared note cards to assist them for their presentation of their explorer project.  Presentations will take place this Thursday and Friday.  (Presentations should last around 2-3 minutes per student.)


The following information is from the office:

The date for Camp Parent Night has been moved to Tuesday, May 8, at 6:00 pm (previously on Wednesday) in the MU. We needed to adjust the date so the presenter could meet with students during the school day as well. This is a mandatory parent information night where staff from Camp Loma Mar will be here to share information about camp and answer questions. Please mark your calendars. We apologize for any inconvenience." 
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you!
