Weekly Newsletter – June 4, 2012

  • Header from Mrs. Dahlbergs Weekly Newsletter.

    Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

    Tomorrow is our field trip to Keys Ranch at Joshua Tree National Park.  We will leave around 9 and be back about 2 pm.  If you would like to volunteer, let me know.  Fingerprinting and TB testing is a district requirement for parent volunteers.  Please remember to bring sunscreen, water bottles, and a sack lunch.  It should be a fun trip!

    We need materials that we can use for constructing a mission including, but not limited to: boxes, cardboard, paint, rocks, sticks, etc.

    Let’s have a spectacular week!

    Your choices can change the world,

    Mrs. Dahlberg
