April Newsletter

Ms. Lerma and Mrs. W

The month of April will be filled with exploring and learning about bugs and insects that we see every day. We will watch caterpillars spin their cocoons and transform into beautiful butterflies. We will let ladybugs crawl on arms and learn how to tell the difference between a male and a female. We will also be celebrating Earth Day and play with wiggly worms. This proves to be a month filled with wonder and amazement as the children learn about the little creatures of our world. On Thursday, April 26 we will be taking our final field trip to Butterfly Wonderland. We will start our tour at 9:30 AM therefore we will leave need to leave Benchmark promptly at 8:45. Please arrive a few minutes early to school that day so we can have everyone ready to go right at 8:45 AM. Money for the field trip is due no later than Friday, April 20. Please let us know if you have a membership to Butterfly Wonderland. We also need to know if you plan to meet us directly at Butterfly Wonderland that morning, in order for us to keep track of where everyone is. Thank you for helping us with these details. These last two months of school are surely going to fly by! Please mark your calendar for our Parent Tea that will be on Friday, May 11, and the End of the Year class party that will be on Friday, May 18.
