This week was full of celebrations! From the concert to spirit week, field trips to Knex challenge and of course field day. This is the week of all school weeks! I feel like I was having too much fun and missed a ton of photo ops. Thanks though to a little help from my friends, I was able to put this short slide show together.
Looking ahead to next week I wanted to give some details about upcoming events.
Monday is the 5th-grade recognition starting at 1:30. Parents are of course invited to attend and refreshments will be served in the cafeteria afterward. If you will be taking your student home with you afterward, please make sure this is reflected in the School Dismissal Manager. Later that evening, I will be climbing up on the roof to follow through on my commitment. The PTO made over $15,000 on the Race For Education so I will be sleeping up there. I keep thinking of that 80's John Cryer movie "Hiding out"- am I the only one? On another note, looking at the weather, I'm not afraid of a little rain but I'm hoping for no thunder/lightning (that may be a game changer). I plan to use Facebook live to do a short bedtime read aloud that night. Hopefully around 7:00.
Tuesday is a half day with dismissal at 11:45. The cafeteria won't be open that day for lunch or breakfast and there is no ASP. This is another "zigger zagger" day so please make sure you adjust your dismissal plans on the school dismissal manager. Students who earned extra recess from RFE will have their 30-minute recess prior to our Step up day. This is the day students will learn who their teachers will be next year as well as who is in their classroom. Report cards will be sent home with students at the end of the day. If your child is not attending on the last day of school for any reason, you can swing by the office during the summer for the report card and your child's placement.
Our garden coordinators have asked me to share the following message with all of you:
"We're looking for volunteers to water the garden bed over the summer. It shouldn't take more than 15 or 20 minutes each day and even less if it rains. If you can just fill in the week that you are willing to water and supply them with an email address and phone number. Once they have this information they will send out directions for the watering.
The link for the spreadsheet is here.
Lorraine and Nancy"
The week ahead:
