We kicked off a new unit on our bodies today! We will be studying each body system and how to best care for our bodies. The conversation today was interesting and insightful. Ask your student what they learned about the skeletal system!

Field Trip Alert!

We have the opportunity to visit Rockford University for P.E TWICE in March! The first trip is March 6, with the second trip being March 23. Please complete and return the March 6 permission slip as soon as possible. Also, please consider driving. The kids love these trips and it will only take about an hour of your morning. Thanks!

“Dem bones, dem bones dem dry bones!” Getting ready for our life size body system models!

Happy Leap Year! See you in March!!
