Waters’ Songs at EcoFest 47, River studies, and Garden Glory

Dear Waters Friends, 
I have been invited to sing a few songs at the 47th Ward Eco-Fest at Welles Park on June 18, 10-2:00. I would like to invite any students (and parents) that would like to join me. I don’t even think we would need a rehearsal (that’s what we do every day at school).  Please let me know if you think you and your kids could attend. https://www.aldermanmartin.com/ecofest

River studies all week!
On Tuesday, May 24, 2nd Grade Room 204 will visit Riverbank Neighbors Natural Area to observe and draw the spring flowers, trees and animals, including the benthic macroinvertebrates that live on the river bottom.We step out with a song at 8:30 and return at 10:30. Join us after drop off!

On Wednesday 5/25 (Room 311), Thursday 5/26 (Room 304), and Friday  5/27(Room 310), 6th Grade will do water quality testing at the river in Sauganash. Students will wade in the water to capture aquatic creatures, and perform an array of chemical tests to assess river health. We will board the bus at 9:30 and return at 1:15. Join us by the fish tank at 9:15.

These trips will complete the Spring field ecology schedule, and we will shift to garden trips, work and planting. The food, the flowers, the trees, the birds and butterflies: what exquisite beauty!

Mr. Leki
