April is nearing its end and May is not too far away. This spring we have seen many rainy days. We rarely have had an occurrence of going through three consecutive days without having to grab our rain boots and umbrellas. Although these cloudy days may make us feel a little down, we can smile knowing that beautiful flowers will be blooming in the near future.
The children's department wrapped up April's STEAM events with a Money Matters program. Focusing on the mathmatic properites of money, children also learned about the features, functions, and characteristics of money. They also learned about the symbols and phrases on our nation's currency. With this information children then designed thier own currency, focusing on what money might look like in the future!
