Davis’ Farmland Field Trip
We are booked and ready to go to our annual field trip to Davis’ farmland (June 11th). If you would like to chaperone please let me know ASAP as I need to put a list of chaperones into the main office. The cost per chaperone may be $11.95 (depending on how many chaperones want to go). If you have not done so yet this year, please fill out a CORI form with Mrs. Lajoie.

Community Helper’s Field Trip
I am in the process of picking the date for our annual “Community Helpers” Field Trip. This trip will include visiting the Royalston DPW, Royalston Post Office, Royalston Library, Athol Library, Royalston Fire Dept., Athol Police Station and Tully Lake. If you are interested in joining us please let me know. If you have not done so yet this year, please fill out a CORI form with Mrs. Lajoie.

UPDATE!!!
Chet Hall Memorial Pancake Breakfast
Our class has decided to put together a basket to raffle for Chet’s breakfast. Kindergarten’s theme is “FISHING”!!!! Chet loved to fish and I am honored to be a part of giving back to a man’s family who did so much for our community and RCS! If you are able, please send in anything that would go into a “Fishing Basket” by Tuesday, March 17th. Ideas could be; lures, nets, tackle boxes, fishing poles, sinkers, buckets. Thank you SO MUCH!

March Family Project (Optional)
Sometime in March Lucky the Leprechaun has been known to cause a little bit of havoc in Kindergarten. Our family project this month will be to make a trap to try to catch him! Please send these traps in before St. Patricks Day, March 17.

MUD, MUD, I LOVE MUD!
Our playground is very…..muddy. Please send in a pair of shoes for your child to change into after recess. A change of clothes kept in backpacks is also VERY helpful as the children PLAY and get WET outside during recess.
