Dear families,

We will continue to learn all about Spring. The Greenburgh Nature Center visited the school and shared some animals with the children. They will return in May and June. Our class has received butterfly larvae and we are charting their progress. The children are using a magnifying glass to look closely without disturbing the larvae cups. We anxiously await the caterpillar growth and chrysalis formation.

We are here to guide the children during these ever-changing times. We will try to answer any questions while reassuring them with our continued attention, concern, and caring support.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Mrs. Pascal, Ms. Nancy & Ms. Dionisia
