Good morning and Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing holiday with your families!
Thank you to all of the families who braved the cold to meet me at the river to release our class pets. We released nearly 80 salmon to the Rogue River. This is one of the best hatchings I’ve had in ten years!
January – March is my favorite time of the school year. This is where we really roll up our sleeves and get to work. Our first big project is the author study. Kids chose their authors yesterday. The assignment description that I gave to them is copied and pasted to the bottom of the email.
The end of the month also brings us music and DARE will be starting soon. Exhibition is scheduled for April 26th and kids will begin the process of brainstorming ideas in the coming weeks. Busy times!
Our next field trip is the Josephine County tree plant on Friday, February 7th. I will be looking for a handful of volunteers who don’t mind getting their hands dirty.
That’s all for now. Have a great day!
