Hi San Tan Families,
Thank you for responding so quickly to the Tonto Creek Field Trip and getting your forms into the front office by Wednesday, March 4TH. It’s a highlight of the year to be in the mountains with each other working on team building and nature activities. The field trip is Friday, April 5th, 7:30-5:00. We need to dress for the weather bringing a jacket and sturdy shoes, bring lots of snacks for the bus, and a waterbottle with name clearly marked on everything.
Next week we are celebrating Dr. Seuss Read Across America Week. We have a theme for each day. Right after lunch we will have reading time along the themes.
