I hope that everyone is enjoying the wonderful long Spring weekend.  Hopefully the few raindrops have not spoiled anyone's activities.  The children had a wonderful time at Spring party on Tuesday.  Thank you to all our volunteers, I could not have done it without you.  The children completed 4 activities.  They dyed Easter eggs, created a chick, made a rabbit card and designed their own Easter egg using painters' tape and wet chalk.  The children placed all the tape to create their own personal design before exploring with the wet chalk. Thanks to everyone who supplied the snacks and drinks.
We are beginning the study of 2 and 3 dimensional shapes in math this month.  This is always a fun unit as we name and identity characteristics of shapes.  The children love the long mathematical names of the three dimensional shapes.  We will also be looking for examples of 3 dimensional shapes in our environment.
Friday is Pajama Day at LKS.  Show your school spirit and wear your favourite pyjamas.
There are many special activities at LKS this spring.  The Parent Council is organizing a  "Pay It Forward" clothing drive for children's clothing.  Please bag and bring in clean and gently used clothing to our classroom between April 1 and April 15.  All clothing will be donated to Second Street Public School.  Thanks in advance for your donations.  The Seeds of Hope club will be having a Penny Drive from April 15-18.  The donation of pennies will help to provide clean drinking water for those in need.  $25.00 provides clean drinking water for one person for life.  Students are also encouraged to wear BLACK on Thursday, April 18.  Start saving your pennies!
Springfest is quickly approaching on Saturday, May 4.  The afternoon class is collecting items for our Silent Auction Basket.  Our theme is "Summer Picnic Fun."  Please continue to watch this blog to see what is already in our basket to avoid duplication.  Please contact the grade parents if you have any questions.  Class baskets are always a big hit at the Silent Auction!
