This month's book is Enemy Pie by Derek Munson. Enemy Pie emphasizes the importance of taking time to learn about people before passing judgment. The summer had seemed perfect until Jeremy Ross moved into the neighborhood, quickly becoming "enemy number one". Jeremy teased and made fun of the narrator and the narrator "took the bait." The narrator talked to his father, a caring adult in his life. His dad offered to help with a recipe for enemy pie! The chief ingredient in enemy pie was time spent in the company of "the enemy". Thanks to Dad's special recipe, Jeremy and the narrator discover they have a lot in common and become friends.

We are excited to announce that the Board has approved Matsumoto's Kindergarten Expansion. We will be renovating Rooms 4 and 5 to expand the classrooms to meet school compliance and also to add a new Kindergarten playground, tables, and awning structure. From now until May 15th, our school will be under construction. Since the fence area is tight between Room 7-12, we ask that parents wait at the top of the stairs in the front parking lot for students to exit. Please ask your child to meet you at the top of the stairs in the front parking lot or a different location of the school. If you need to walk down the stairs to find your child, please wait until foot traffic has lessened. Thank you in advance for your patience as we get this project underway.
