Reminder - Thurs. is the Dance - a - Thon, so please bring in those pledge forms.

Wednesday - April 22nd is Earth Day, which is during the Easter break.  We may be going out for a yard clean up tomorrow, although the weatherpeople don't look like they are going to cooperate.  Make sure everyone is dressed in clothes that are OK to get a little dirty, just in case.

The Dairy Farmers of Ontario dropped by for a visit today to talk to the students about the benefits of milk.  Here is their website:

Illinois Agriculture Dept.

Some games and a word search from the Michigan Dept. of Agriculture


Thursday is Yellow, Pink, and White day.

Math - we are reviewing multiplying today to be ready for a quiz tomorrow.  Grade 3s had a review class today, with the questions taken up in class.  Grade 4 worked on their review questions, and we took up the first one.   Grade 4 was sent home with their review questions and answers as a reference.  Question 5 is on the expanded form of multiplying.  Here is a website for more explanation and practice.

Have a good night.
