2nd: Nature Walk 12:00pm

During Social Studies students learned about fall and some of the changes we expect to see. We will be taking a quick walk to Central Park and collecting leaves and other collectible nature stuff we find. We will gather in the park to discuss our findings. These "collections" will also be used for various activities in the class. We will learn to classify leaves and make a couple of different art activities, which will be posted soon on this site.

8th: Columbus Day--School will be closed

12th: Trip to Hi-Art Studio. Make sure your child brings in a signed permission slip and a bagged lunch. It looks like Fridays will be our Hi-Art day. For parents that don't know, students will be part of an art program that takes weekly excursions to an art studio to learn about art and experiment with different types of art media. At times students will be attending art galleries and museums. I would love to have parents accompany us. Please let me know in advance if you can join us.
