Primary D Weekly Note

Dear Primary D Parents,

Next Wednesday, March 16, our class is going to take a field trip in connection with our City Theme study. For our field trip we will be participating in a service project led by Brian Jordan at the Hope Bridge Community Garden, located in the Mantua section of Philadelphia. After our service project we will have a picnic lunch at the Cira Green Rooftop Park. Please remember to dress your child for a day outside and pack a trashless lunch (as much as possible). Please be in touch if you’d be interested in being a chaperone. We will depart school at 10am and return to school by 1:30pm.

Next Friday, March 18, is our learning celebration. The chorus concert will begin in the garage at 1:15 and will feature two songs from the Primary Unit chorus, along with performances from each of the music classes. Please join us immediately afterwards in our classroom for the learning celebration. We will be serving some Rita’s water ice as a treat.

We are looking forward to seeing you the following week as well at conferences. A note about conference child care: If you need child care (for a TPS-enrolled student) during your conference time on March 24 or 25, it will be available in the Lombard Street building from 7:30am to 5:30pm. A receptionist will direct you to the room where supervision will be available. Children may not wait in the office. Thanks.

We are sending home speech and language screening consent forms for all first graders. Screenings are optional and will happen during the month of April, after we've returned from spring break. Please sign the form and send it back to school by Friday, March 25.

Have a restful weekend.

Ben and Niké
