4th Quarter Skills:A list of the skills to be mastered during the fourth quarter will be coming home this week.

Virtual Snack Sale:  On Thursday we will have a virtual snack sale to benefit the children in Guaymas, Mexico.

Ducks:  Each year when we learn about life cycles, I like to attempt to hatch chickens or ducks using a small incubator.  This year we are going to try ducks. Due to the temperature in the classroom fluctuating so much, I incubate the eggs in my home and then bring them to school when the hatch date draws near.  Each year, we have been lucky enough to get at least one to hatch.  The eggs arrived at my home on Saturday and I will place them in the incubator this evening.  Hopefully in about 3 1/2 or 4 weeks we will have some ducklings.
