Hello Parents! We have a fun week ahead of us! Take a look below at what is going to be happening.

Field Day: Friday, March 29th. Scholars will be participating in many outdoor activities which create opportunities of fun and team building! We will be engaging in many outdoor activities so please send your scholar to school with enough water to last from 8 am to 12 pm, a hat or sunglasses, and sunscreen. Appropriate attire for scholars is listed below:

  • Shirts: Spirit Wear (polos or Athenian Tees, performance wear), plain T-shirts, or sporting team T-shirts (professional, college, youth, or apparel brands like Adidas or Under Armor). All shirts should be in good repair, loose fitting, and modest. These guidelines apply to sweatshirts and jackets as well.

Reading: We will continue The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis. So far, students have loved this story and we look forward to reading more of it this week.

Poetry: Our current poem “Windy Nights ” by Robert Louis Stevenson. Poetry recitations will take place next week, so please continue to help them memorize this poem at home!

Windy Nights 

Robert Louis Stevenson

Whenever the moon and stars are set,
Whenever the wind is high,
All night long in the dark and wet,
A man goes riding by.
Late in the night when the fires are out,
Why does he gallop and gallop about?
Whenever the trees are crying aloud,
And ships are tossed at sea,
By, on the highway, low and loud,
By at the gallop goes he.
By at the gallop he goes, and then
By he comes back at the gallop again.

Warmly,

Ms. Allen, Mrs. Pim and Ms. Castle
