Kindergarten Bears

The Kindergartners are learning about the bears' life cycles, what they eat, how they care for their cubs, and why they sleep during the winter.  There are 8 species of bears, though some are quite rare.  The Polar, Black, Giant Panda, Grizzly, Spectacled, Sun, Sloth, and the Asian Black bear will be explored.

First Grade Updates

Our Exploring Habitats Dioramas are due Wednesday, November 30th.  Please do not forget because late projects will be marked down.

Store Day is next Friday, December 9th.  Please check your child's folder regularly because there will be numerous notices going home regarding this.  I will need 2-3 volunteers for that morning, roughly 9:00AM - 12:00 PM and lots of donations and items to be borrowed.  I will thank you in advance for all of your help.  -Ms. Pyle
