Finishing Touches

Another week with everything falling into place, ending another year, where everything fell into place. The students at Country Classroom are getting ready to celebrate the end of the school year.

Tree Time with Scott Monday and Tuesday, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders got special lessons with Scott. They were provided with the advanced class on Tree Identification

We look so more as we try to answer some of these questions and consult some of our books to see if we can find out even more. Cheryl's PreK Reflections "Eeek! An ant! A bee!"
