If you have a shade structure that we can borrow for the day,  please let me know ASAP!  It really does add to the experience.  Also, we could use some adult help in the morning for set-up and in the afternoon for break down.  Please let me know if you can help us.  Thanks for all you do!  (This is our last Outdoor School fundraiser of the year!)

*Students will begin biographies this week.  They will be checking out books from our library on Thursday.  It might be helpful to your student if you talk with them about their choices.  (George Washington and Abraham Lincoln will be excluded from the lists of possibilities.  And, Obama and Trump may not be in our library yet, so these two will not be available.)  Be sure that they have a first and second choice.  The reading, note taking, and writing will all be done in class.  It is a big project but, also, a very worthwhile project.
