THANK YOU so much to all the moms, dads, grandpas and grandmas that came with us to the zoo last Monday!!! We had a great time touring the zoo, ate a delicious picnic lunch, and managed to avoid most of the heavy rain!! The kids loved sharing about all the animals they saw and their favorite parts of the day. 🙂
We will be enjoying some fun themed days over the next two weeks. All of these special days are a surprise that will be revealed to the kids the day before. (Shhhhh – please help me keep all of the fun a secret!!!) I will send an e-mail the day before if something special from home is needed at school. Thank you for your help!
May 28 – Memorial Day: No School
May 29 – Pizza Lunch in the Classroom
Pizza and juice will be provided for each student (and some extra yummy treats!). You are welcome to supplement your child’s lunch with any snacks you would like. If your child is not a fan of pizza, feel free to send in their lunch, as normal, and we will all picnic together in the class.
May 29 – Last Homework Packet Sent Home
Thank you so much for helping your child complete their home work packets each week!!! Look for an e-mail with some ideas for summer learning later this week. I will also send home some books lists at your child’s just right level to help when you are looking for books to read over the summer. If you are wondering about tutoring or additional resources, just send me an e-mail.
May 29 – No Shoes Day
Send your child to school in their shoes, but we will take them off and let our feet relax in the classroom.
May 30 – Hat/Crazy Hair Day
May 31 – Sports Day
June 1 – Toy Day
June 1 – Talent Show
The 3rd-5th graders are performing. We get to watch the afternoon show!
Please make sure your child continues to come to school with their blue folder and backpack. A lot of materials, creations, and goodies will be coming home over the next two weeks. It is hard to believe that our year is almost done – only 8.5 more days!
One last note, every year, we look forward to celebrating the end of the year together outside with bubbles, sidewalk chalk, popsicles, and fun! We are all stocked up on FUN, but…we would LOVE if you would add bubbles, LARGE bubble wands (Dollar Tree), or popsicles to one of your shopping lists in the next few weeks. We will hold our celebration on Wednesday, June 6th, so if you are willing to help supply us, you can feel free to send in your goodies anytime before that day.
