Also in April grade 2 takes a trip to the Natural History Museum, grade 3 heads to the California Science Center, and grades 4 and 5 participate in Pennekamp's science fair. I will definitely divert some time away from environmental topics to support these other science-themed events.
April is National Poetry Month, but at the Pennekamp library, we will venture into poetry in May.
The library will be closed on Thursday, April 11. I will be at a professional development event.
There's a particularly great event happening at Pennekamp on the evening of April 18: the 23nd annual Richstone Feast. This is hands-down my favorite annual PK event. It is a fundraiser for the Richstone Family Center, which helps families in crisis to be safe, create stability for their children, and basically get back on their feet. There are two "feast" seatings, and the 5th-grade students handle all the set-up, serving, and clean-up. On top of the benefits to our community and to the participating students, this event is always just so much fun! Tickets can still be purchased from Mr. Warner in 3rd grade. I urge you--be a part of this outstanding community service tradition. It is Pennekamp, at its very best.
