I hope everyone enjoyed the Spring Break and relaxed with family and friends.

Mrs. Wenger will graduate from Millersville University on May 6. Her last day with us will be May 5. Mrs. Wenger is loved by all of the students and has been a superb student teacher this school year. This week Mrs. Wenger will complete another full week of teaching and then co- teach with me until her last day. I can’t thank Mrs. Wenger enough for her professionalism, her love of teaching, and her relationships she has built with our class and many other students in our building.

It’s a short week with a lot of fun activities! Wednesday we will have a HapPeep Day! This is probably my favorite day of the year! We do all things Peeps! Will get a marshmallow Peep, but will not eat it in school, instead we make a home for it and write about it. We also will get Starburst Jelly Beans for math. Please let me know if you do not want your child to eat these in class. We will also make Peep Putty for our science lesson.

Both AM and PM classes filled their marble jars again! They are working so well together and they absolutely deserve an “extra” for their teamwork. The AM class will have an extra recess on Monday and the PM class will have a Pajama Day. Way to go everyone!

No school April 14 – 18. Have a great Easter and Spring Break!

April? Really? How did we get here so fast?

Monday: Library Book Exchange. Our librarian comes to our room with a selection of books for students to “check out”. Library Book Exchange is scheduled every four days (Day D). I will post reminders when we have library. I know it helps that after your child reads the book, they put it right back in their backpack to be ready for book exchange.

Toilet paper rolls…send them in. We are collecting toilet paper rolls so we can play some Math Bowling games in school.

We are having a fine arts night featuring framed artwork from every student at Central Manor and music performances by small student ensembles. Kindergarten learned about the artistic style of Eric Carle. Our art pieces are based on the book The Hungry Caterpillar, and they are amazing!

When: Tuesday, April 26th from 6:30-8:30
Where: Central Manor Gymnasium, Art Room, and Lower Lobby

I want to take a minute and tell you how awesome your child is this year. I have watched them grow and learn and mature. They are all hard workers, try their best, and are KIND to each other. Those qualities are learned from home, so thank you parents for being a powerful influence on your child.
