Knights and Maidens Newsletter South: August 2010

July was very hot and wet.  We enjoyed water play on Tuesday mornings, learning about Independence Day, camping, oceans, and Disney. During the month of August we will spend the first two weeks learning about dinosaurs. Our final week for this school year we will be playground Picasso’s and do all kinds of fun outside art.
