Great news our Discovery School Tote bags will be sent home Wednesday, April 3rd. We encourage you to use the weekend to have your child involve
family and friends to help out with this great project. CEPUDO donates new and slightly used newborn baby clothes (pajamas,

When you receive your tote bag, feel free to fill it up with as much as you like. Return the tote bag to school by Monday April 8th. The totes will be donated to CEPUDO and they will distribute them.

In Science we are getting ready for our Science Fair Presentations. The Science Fair will be held on April 5th. We have conducted different experiments in our classrooms. You are all welcome to come to our classrooms at 8:15 a.m. to see these wonderful experiments the students have been working on. The children are having so much fun learning and being little scientists. On this day we would like to have the students to come dressed as a little scientist. Be creative!!

Our Easter party will be on Wednesday, April 10th. We are requesting for each child to bring 12 plastic eggs. Please send them to school if you have not done so.
