Field Trip Update

Hello Families! Anybody else ready for spring??? I know I definitely am!

I wanted to give you an update on our field trip. As of right now (Wednesday evening) our field trip will still be held on Friday, January 24. Your child will need to wear comfortable shoes and dress warmly because we will be on our feet all day, and we will be walking approximately 2 blocks from the capitol building to the museum.

If there is a 2 hour delay on Friday, our field trip will be postponed until Friday, February 7. This will be an automatic decision, but we will try to post the information here, on Twitter, and on the Bear Creek website if the decision needs to be made.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the trip on Friday. Fingers crossed that we have a full day of school so we can go and enjoy our time in Harrisburg!

Holiday Fun

We had a busy month between parent teacher conferences and our holiday break! We all worked very hard to write about our lives as a water drop going through the water cycle, and you will see those pieces published on the blog very soon. We practiced our reading strategies and skills by learning about how they celebrate Christmas in the tropical climate of Hawaii, and we started to learn about the physical regions of Pennsylvania.

Please be on the lookout for our field trip permission slip which will be coming home on January 6! We'll be traveling to the state capitol and museum in Harrisburg on January 24, and we are very excited for the trip.

Our last day before break was filled with fun, food, and teamwork! Everybody enjoyed the delicious food we had for breakfast (a special thanks to Miss Conrad and Ms. Miller for flipping ALL of those pancakes!) and to all of the families who donated supplies for the morning. Please check out the fun we had in our slideshow below! You'll see us enjoying breakfast, stuffing Santa's belly full of jelly (aka balloons), playing pictionary and bingo, having a snowball toss, and participating in a snowman building contest and a Hershey kiss relay. It was definitely a fun way to celebrate the end of 2013!
