We had our 1st field trip today to the Marine Science Center. Make sure to watch the slideshow. We had so much fun and learned a lot about turtles, the bird sanctuary, and the jetty. We got to see a Screech Owl and a Falcon up close. There were baby turtles in the turtle hospital/rehabilitation center. We learned about toothed vs. baleen whales. It was quite the interesting day. A HUGE thank you to our parent chaperones that went-Maria, Jenn, Chris, Ashley, Paul, and Michelle. We LOVE ya!
David's dad even got the Ponce Inlet Fire Department to make a visit during lunch. The firemen talked to the kids about what to do in case they are ever caught in a fire. Thank goodness for Fire Prevention Month. We even had a fireman dress in full bunker gear to show the kids so they wouldn't be scared if a fireman had to enter their home. We really are lucky to be a Wright's Ripper!
Mr. Zebell sent in a huge pumpkin for us to do some extra fun math this upcoming week. Thank you!
Ivy Grace was our Ripper of the Week and we learned she wants to be a veteranarian when she grows up. She is a very good artist and is such a good friend to us all. We enjoyed writing about Ivy Grace and even got a special treat from her mom. Mom made a movie for us to watch Ivy Grace grow from baby to now(even a picture with SpongeBob at the Nick Hotel from last month.) Next Ripper of the Week is Jacob.
