Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms in our class community! Students enjoyed learning about weaving traditions from different cultures while making their nature weaving for you.

To beat the heat this week, you can send ice in a thermos, a hat, apply sunscreen in the morning and if possible, opt for light clothing with long sleeves and pants. Shorts/tank tops are acceptable, but just know kids are risking a lot more minor scrapes. Running shoes instead of rubber boots are fine but closed-toe shoes are a must. If you wish your child to re-apply sunscreen, I can not apply it for them. We will seek shade, build in rest breaks, give plenty of chances to re-fill the water bottles, and allow them to splash cool water on their face.
