From the desk of Ms. Costanzo:
– The students have started our unit on Earth in PBL. They became poets and wrote their own poems about nature. We will be gardening soon and watching the new life we will help create. Their work is often displayed outside the kitchen and the students present their work in Assembly.
– Assembly- Friday 4/20 in the Church @ 1:50. Hope you can join us.
– PTO meeting- Wednesday 4/18 @ 6:00 pm.
– Stay informed by viewing my weekly Blog and Homework assignments on our website. astorialutheranschool.com
– NYS Math exams will take place the first week of May.
– Blogging/Gaming club will begin in May.
– PS- So, now some of you know that I can “Floss”, LOL (I heard you saw the video) I’m just as silly as my students, that’s why we get along so well.
