I have been looking at the weather map and I do not want to cancel today's trip because the kids would be soooooo disappointed, but we can tweek things a bit. I see on the radar map that it should be raining there by about 11:30. We can still meet at the beach and do the program with the park naturalist at 10:30, but once she is done, depending upon how the maps appear by then, we can visit the nature center for a bit and then find an open pavilion and eat our lunches together under shelter and then call it a day by about 12:30.
If parents wish for their kids to swim and become kidsicles before the rain comes, that's ok too. I know that kids often don't care about temperature as much as we do. At least they can play a bit on the beach sand, swim if parents wish, learn some things about the lake and bugs, learn some more in the nature center, eat a hardy lunch, and feel like they've had a good time on their last day.
Let's do it!

Good afternoon parents,
Please find the attached form for our last day of school High Point beach day. Please realize that we have NO staffing at the school on this, our last day of school. We hope you can all join us! We love to have a comfortable visit with everyone on the last day - it has been a tradition here at Fields of Green for many years.
You can email me your responses, and if your child (Sprouts and older students only) needs a ride to the park, I will pair your child up with a parent who is willing to drive from the school. You can then make an agreement to arrange pick up of your child at the end of the day with your child's chaperone.
We truly appreciate each and every parent who offers to help chaperone kids who would otherwise not be able to go if their parent has to work.

Hello Elementary/Middle Parents,
Make sure that your child brings in his/her experiment tomorrow already completed! If the results end up being something that isn't able to be left here or shown, maybe send in some of the materials and also pictures of your child doing the experiment with pics of the results. Please don't email them and ask me to print them out. They have been working on their display boards but we need something physical to go in front of them.
Biking on Monday will take place at 9:30 am. We load up bikes first and then drive to Maple Grange. Aaron has a nice morning planned there for the kids! If you can drive, you can arrive at school late with your child if you want. I won't consider you late on that day if you are driving.

Good afternoon all,
I just heard from Miss Corrie, the Art teacher who is setting up the Art Show for the kids at Open House. She informed me that she will be displaying work from ALL of the students from Seedlings on up, so come and enjoy your child's work in the show on Sunday!

Good afternoon Elementary/Middle parents,
In all of this information I've been trying to keep straight I keep forgetting to write to my own class about our Science Fair projects this year. The kids were supposed to take their projects home last Friday to begin at home over the weekend, and since I was in the garden trying to finish up their plantings, most of them forgot to take them.
We only have a couple of days left before Open House, but I am planning on having their projects out and displayed on Sunday. I told the kids that they must conduct the experiments at home (it's a GROSS Science Fair this year! Only a couple of kids refuse to get gross.) and I will take care of their displays at school.
Most experiments we chose together are easy and quick due to the lack of time, so please help your child to finish their experiments and then bring EVERYTHING in from your experiment on Friday.
Thanks, and hold onto your hats because time is passing us by so quickly it feels like a windstorm!
