Grandparent's breakfast

This last week we were able to invite our grandparents into our school. We held a breakfast two different mornings. Grandparents were able to eat breakfast with their grandchild, be shown around our school, and visit our school's book fair. This was a great event and hopefully something we will be able to continue.

Spring Jefferson County Park Trip

Friday, April 8th, our class gets to go to Jefferson County Park again. We are really excited to be able to go for a second time this year. We will only be going for the afternoon, so a cold lunch is not required. We will eat lunch at school before loading the bus.

Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for being outside all afternoon and for walking through water. Waterproof boots are suggested. Also, if you happen to have an extra pair of boots and would be willing to loan them to another child that day please send them.

Spring Music Concert

This year the Libertyville and Washington Third and Fourth Grade students will be combining to bring you a Spring Program titled Jazz: A Swingin' Celebration. This is a program that came in a magazine subscription that was purchased with funds from one of the parent groups at the end of the year last year.

This program touches on a little bit of the history of Jazz in the United States, its roots as well as other branches of music that began through Jazz. The students have learned the names of several Jazz artists as well as how this music all ties together. There is a little Swing, Jazz, Dixieland, and Blues. Artists are mentioned from Duke Ellington to Herbie Hancock. This should be an exciting program for all.

The spring vocal concert will be on Monday, April 18th at 7pm at the Sondheim Center. There is no admission charge, but a free-will donation basket will be in the lobby.
