It was another great week in Kindergarten with great weather, which we took advantage of, as we went outside for our playtime for a few days. We also wrote lists of spring things while outdoors one afternoon! The highlight of our week was definitely our trip to Critter Barn and the park. I want to thank all of my wonderful parent volunteers, we absolutely could not have done it without you, so thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am excited to talk in more detail about it with the kids on Monday! I have included some pictures at the end of this update. I tried to get pictures of each child but that proved to be more challenging than anticipated given the manner in which we were organized into groups. We have lots of things coming up as we close out our last month of kindergarten so continue to watch your emails closely! It is a blessing to be teaching your children!
