This week the students experienced an assembly with wild cats. For once, I was happy to be in the back row when the presenter brought in a full-grown cheetah for the students to observe hear facts about this magnificent animal. Ask your child what he learned about the wild cats that we saw on Friday.
Our ABC Reader volunteer came to the class and read "Enemy Pie" by Derek Munson. In the story a boy seeks his father's help to get rid of an enemy. His father has the perfect answer. He will cook an enemy pie while his son goes and spends an entire day with his "best enemy." Dad makes the perfect pie and his son learns a valuable lesson in making friends.
