Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers in Room 159.  I hope you are enjoying your special day.  The children had a wonderful time creating your paintings during our visit from the artist.  They also put much effort and love into your cards.  It was wonderful to watch the creative process and see their pride in their accomplishments.  They couldn't wait to take home your presents.
Nathalie Vachon, a storyteller, musician and artist presented to both classes on Friday.  The children loved her interactive stories and songs.  
We will be starting a unit on frogs on Monday.  We will be learning the lifecycle of frogs and how they grow.  Watch our bulletin board in the hall as a pond will emerge as the week continues.
The Grade 5 class is having a book drive for less privileged children.  You may send in gently used children's books, text books, encyclopedias and adult books.  New pencils and crayons are also accepted. There is a donation box in our classroom.
Thank you to everyone who has ordered from Scholastic this year.  The May order has been placed and should be arriving soon.  The final order form will be sent home at the end of the week.
As there is no school next Monday, May 20, mailbags will go home Tuesday and Friday next week.  Enjoy the long weekend with your family and friends.
A reminder of the May Sharing Assembly on May 28.  It has been moved from May 22 due to Kindergarten workshop that the teachers will be attending.  Families will be notified next week.
