Next Field Trip - May 1 - Hoover/Minthorne House,  Newberg
The perfect ending to our study of presidents is to visit the house where Herbert Hoover lived.


Thanks to Beth Stubbs for coordinating the refreshments for the kids' after-party. She and Katie did it all themselves! Thank you.

Thanks to the paparazzi who took video and snapshots for us.

Thanks, too, to all the parents who helped with the Presidents project. The kids were spectacular at every performance. I am so proud of their achievement!

Thanks, kids!

Our spelling bee participants are Sanjana and Jasmine. Good luck!
