Calling All Field Day Volunteers!

We will have the opportunity to participate in field day on May 8th. Please make sure your student has comfortable, cool clothes, tennis shoes and sunscreen that day. We are looking forward to a morning filled with fun! :) 

End of The Year Celebration

 We will serve lunch to the kids (pizza party) and then we will have stations set up outdoors or in each classroom for the classes to rotate around with fun activities planned at each station- one being an ice cream sundae station…what kid won't love that?!  So what we are hoping for and asking for is a donation from each family to help us to pay for the food and supplies needed to make this party successful.  If each family is willing to contribute $5-$7 towards the party, we should be able to cover the cost of every child.  Please send in your donation (we can only accept cash) in an envelope to your child's teacher labeled "End of Year Party." Thank you so much for your help and making this party great for our children!

We have snack every day. Please encourage your student to pack a snack each day. Lunch time can be a long time to wait to eat. :)
