Native Plants and Camp Cispus


Not only is it Native Plant Appreciation Week, it is the week before we go to Camp Cispus. Click the link (below) to visit a great website. You'll find a list that contains links to photographs and descriptions to some of the more recognizable native plants of Washington. Next week at camp, the kids will go on a scavenger hunt to identify the plants we discussed in class.

Speaking of Camp Cispus, it's finally here! They have worked hard to sell candy bars, magazines, and ran laps during the hottest day of the year in a fun run in order to pay for four days and three nights of outdoor fun (and learning)!

Read below for 4 important reminders. 
SOME REMINDERS

1) Mr. Beasley and I will be at the school till 5:30PM on Monday if you'd like to drop off luggage or  any non-perishable donations. Perishables and luggage can be delivered Tuesday morning from 8-8:25AM. 

2) Pack your child a sack lunch for Monday. I MEAN TUESDAY!! OOPS. :( 

3) It looks like rain next week! The kids need jeans and sturdy shoes, and options for drizzly days. They aren't allowed to wear shorts when we are tromping about through the woods. They need sturdy shoes for being out on the trails. 

4) If you are going to meet us at Mossyrock Park on Friday, May 9th, I've listed the park information here for you. We will be there around 11:30 and will leave for Adna around 1:15. (Times might vary slightly!)

DIRECTIONS FOR FRIDAY: Drive east on Highway 12 for approximately 21 miles. Turn right on Williams Street (flashing yellow light). Continue several blocks on Williams Street to a "T" intersection in the town of Mossyrock. Turn left onto State Street. Outside of town, State Street becomes Mossyrock Road East and then Ajlune Road. Ajlune Road leads into the park.
