Julie Philbrook, a safety educator from Hennepin County Medical Center, spoke to our students last week about the importance of wearing their bike helmets  EVERY time they ride their bikes this summer!  We are thankful for Julie's willingness to spend time with us.  Her message is so important for bikers of all ages!  Are all of you wearing your helmets?  We hope so!

This past week we have been learning about our state of Minnesota.  We learned that it can be very snowy, even in May!!  But, it is a wonderful place to live.  The loon, the lady slipper, the agate, the blueberry and the Norway pine are a few of our state symbols.  Maybe we should have included the mosquito but it is not an official symbol yet.  At the end of the week we hosted Minnesota Twins Day! We all wore our Twins gear, made Twins banners and Homer Hankies.  Popcorn was the perfect snack and we played a little ball before going home.  Go Twins!
