The PTO is sponsoring an in-school Field Trip this Thursday morning. High Touch High Tech serves many schools providing a unique blend of hands-on science experiences presented in a fun and participatory manner. The program we will be taking part in is "Weather or Not" which aligns with our upcoming Weather Unit in Science. Every student participates in each experiment and even brings home some souvenirs. Thanks to the PTO for providing this for the First Grade classrooms!

Thank You Again!
