Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

Greetings Wawaloam Community,

While it is hard to believe, next week we will be in the month of MARCH! On March 2, we are celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday!

To really get the celebration going, we are inviting everyone in Grades 1 and 2 to wear Red, White and Black to school on Wednesday and to bring their favorite Dr. Seuss book to school if they would like to.

Kindergarten has decided to have a PJ day!  This will definitely add to the excitement about our big field trip at the end of the week!

A reminder that we do need permission slips signed and returned to school by Tuesday and the donations for the Washington Trust Peanut Butter collection are greatly appreciated! We already have about 20 jars!

Grade 2 friends are SO excited about the arrival of their mealworms! 
Let the observing begin scientists!

Additionally, next Friday will are thrilled with the planned visit with author Scott Magoon to Wawaloam School who will be giving a talk to each grade level about the creation of his books! We will see some of the behind the scenes secrets to his fantastic sketches and creative ideas! We can't wait! 

Thank you PTA for making all of these memorable events happen! 

Have a wonderful weekend, 
Melissa Marino

P.S. We will celebrate READING WEEK April 11-15, more information soon!
