What a fun week we’ve been having at school!! The kids have looked forward to popping the balloons each day to see what our surprise is for the day!!
Tomorrow we are going to have a bubbles and chalk day outside!! We are also going to read outside tomorrow. Please send your child to school with a beach towel and sunglasses! We will use them during our reading time.
Ask your child about our fun Minute to Win it games we played today!! They were so fun!!
Please remember to continue to send your child with a backpack to school, we will keep sending things home all week.
We’ve worked hard and earned our 20 stars!! Our reward is a fort and stuffed animal day. The kids voted on what they wanted to work toward, and that is what won!! Next week Monday, June 2 we will celebrate!! On Monday, the kids can bring a blanket and stuffed animal to school. They can practice reading in their fort, snuggling up with their stuffed animal friends!!
Today we had many parents who biked to school and wanted to pick their children up as a last minute surprise. These pick ups were unplanned resulting in parents trying to get students off busses and/or locating them as they were moving through the bus loop.
Changes in going home transportation cannot be made after 3 pm each day. When emergencies occur, we do make changes, however as a general safety procedure it is critical that the 3 pm rule be followed.
It is the staff’s responsibility to get 630 children to the busses, after school care or to the front lobby for parent pickup. Each teacher sorts their students into groups for this critical end of day procedure — cross checking with parent notes, emails, phone calls.
The purpose of this email is to remind everyone that a change in going home requires contact with the school no later than 3 pm in the day. If you are picking up your child, go to the front lobby for pick up.
Contact me if you have any questions. I want all of the children to get home safely.
This will be our last week for WEB reading. Your child will still be bringing home a WEB book this week, but not next week. A huge thank you to our parent volunteers who have read with all of the kids! We couldn’t have done it without you!!
