We look forward to our trip to Mission Trails Regional Park on Monday. This trip includes a scavenger hunt through the park’s museum exhibits and a ranger-led hike where students will discover how the Kumeyaay lived long ago. This will be a free-dress trip. Weather-wise, it should be sunny with a high of 63. We will be outside for most of the trip, so I suggest that students dress in layers, wear sunscreen, and bring a hat/visor. We will bring our lunches to the park and enjoy a picnic lunch there before returning to school.
This Thursday will be the APEX Fun Run! It is a free dress day. Students should wear running attire and will recieve an APEX shirt for the run. We still need parent volunteers to help count laps and pass out water. Please let the office know if you are interested in volunteering. The run for 3rd - 6th grades begins at 10:00am on the playground. See below for a message from the APEX Team.
Progress reports went home as needed in your child's Friday folder. If there is not an area of concern at this time, you will not receive a progress report.
Have a great week!
Ms. Anne Raymond
