Welcome to the A2 Family!

Thank you so much to the parents who were able to attend Back to School Night last night.  I know it was a late evening, especially with little ones at home, but Mrs. Vazquez and I appreciate your partnership in your child's education!  If you were unable to make it, the informational packet will be sent home with your child today or Monday.  As you read through the Back to School Night packet, please feel free to email me or stop by with any questions.

Parent Teacher Conferences are quickly approaching!  Please CLICK HERE to sign up.

We will be going to Lemo's Pumpkin Farm on Tuesday, October 21.  Admission is $12 per child and $3 per adult.  We would kindly appreciate your $12-15 cash donations to help off-set the cost of this field trip.  Please give donations to Mrs. Glasgo/ Mrs. Vazquez by October 8th so we can pre-pay.  To sign up to be a driver/chaperone on the Lemo's Pumpkin Farm Field Trip, please CLICK HERE.

Insect Invasion!

This week we started learning about insects. We learned that insects have six legs and three body parts (the head, thorax, and abdomen). Today we made insects out of modeling clay! Thank you, Maria, for your help! You will be able to check them out tomorrow at Back to School Night, but here are pictures of a few.
