Weekly Update 5/6-5/10

Hello everyone!

Last week we had a wonderful time on our field trip to the Idaho Botanical Gardens. IN addition to our field trip, we had special guests visit first grade last week! Mrs. McCall’s parents are beekeepers, and they brought a beehive for us to see! It was interesting to learn about the life of bees.  Afterward, we got to try on a beekeeper suit! I have pictures, but I’m having some technical difficulties, so I will try to post them next week.

*Our carnival was a big success! It was good to see so many of you there. Thank you to those that were able to volunteer.
