The Underwood preschoolers have been leaning the process of mailing letters by making valentines and sending them to classmates through the dramatic play "Post Office" in their classroom. Then they were given the opportunity to visit the Underwood post office and mail a real Valentine to a special family member. What a great learning experience!

Thank you to our fantastic volunteers and to Thrivent Financial for making it possible for the 3rd graders to sew fleece hats again this year! The students each have a great new hat to wear and were able to donate 40 hats to local charities.

What a beautiful day to visit Otter Berry Farm. The kindergarten classes got to explore the farm, have some adventure time in the corn maze, feed and pet the animals, play and go on a wagon ride. What an adventure we had....we cannot wait to decorate our pumpkins.

The kindergarten classes visited with our local firefighters last Friday to learn about fire safety. We got to take a look at all their fire trucks, equipment and tools they use. We even got a special ride back to school in the fire trucks with lights and sirens. Thank you Underwood Firefighters for all you do for us!
