Mrs. Donna Ryan

March 20 -   We are also having a food drive, please send in non-perishables. Our field trip is next Tuesday, March 26.  PLEASE pack an easy, healthy snack for the bus.  We will have limited time for lunch (20-25 minutes) please pack an easy lunch. Please talk to the kids about responsible bathroom use.  We had 20 visits to the bathroom and 3 requests for the water fountain BEFORE snack time (10:15) That's 71% of the class needed to use the bathroom before snack even started. During snack we had additional bathroom visits.
