Thursday is our Field trip to see, “Robin Hood” at a local theatre in Portage Park. The kids will be walking with Mrs. Baldwin and Mrs. Rocans. Due to bad knees I can’t walk that far, but will be driving over with Mrs. Connors. We will leave promptly at 8:50a.m. and return in time for lunch.

Tuesday will be my own test on “Mangrove Wilderness” We have been drawing food chains based on what we have read. We broke down the story to fully understand details and connections.
We have sad news to report from fourth grade: Ben’s grandfather who lives with them passed away two days ago. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family. Ben was blessed to know his grandfather so well and his grandpa was blessed to have Ben’s love.
