The JE EXPRESS - May/June 2013
We enjoyed our field trip to the Old Clearwater Courthouse to participate in the trial of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. It was so much fun and educational! We are looking forward to the upcoming In-House trips. We would like to thank the parents who have volunteered to chaperone; we could not have done it without you!
The children have been working hard and challenging themselves during work cycle. We have many published authors, come and browse. Our students should be proud of themselves!
