            <p>Dear PNS Families,<br>
Spring is in the air, and we are noticing lots of changes and signs of spri=
ng.  'Mud' was the first sign of spring identified, but we've seen snow dro=
ps, little baby plants starting to poke up out of the ground, and yesterday=
 morning we tapped the maple tree outside our fence.  Today we collected 23=
 cups of sap from our bucket!  Next week we will cook it down and see how m=
uch syrup we are able get.<br>
On a sadder note, Myriam and her family will be returning to France next Tu=
esday.  It has been wonderful to have Myriam in the classroom, and we are v=
ery sorry to have to say goodbye.  Luckily we have lots of message sending =
going on, so I'm sure we will soon be sending international communiques!  W=
e wish Myriam, Ariane, and Alexis the very best, and look forward to hearin=
g about the new baby.<br>
We are currently under enrolled by one spot but, given the lateness of the =
year, have decided not to fill it with a new family.  If any 4-day families=
 would like to pick up an extra day, please let me know.<br>
Have a great weekend!<br>
