Welcome back!

This week students will be working creating finger puppets based on their families and then will give a speech about them to the class.

On Thursday, April 4th our class will go on a guided field trip to BRING Recycling, Glenwood Transfer Station (the “dump” and recycling center), and Short Mountain Landfill. We plan to leave at 8:35am and return at 11:55am, just in time for lunch at school. There is no cost for the field trip, as transportation will be paid for by the district’s EWEB grant. It is important that your child wear closed toed, comfortable walking shoes. Chaperones will need to ride the bus, as parking at our first stop is limited and everyone has to be on the bus when we go to the landfill. This field trip will be a wonderful opportunity for students to see first-hand where our garbage and recycling goes. This knowledge will help support the work that Irving is doing as an Oregon Green School and will tie in with what students will continue to learn in their lessons by Partners for Sustainable Schools. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the field trip.

The Irving Pillar assembly is Friday April 5th, at 1:30-2:20. Several students in our class will be receiving awards not only for pillars, but we also have at least seven students that will be recognized for memorizing their facts. Keep up the hard work Room #12 students!!
