We had a wonderful time enjoying skating and a STEM activity at United Skates! Thank you to Ann Whitehurst who was instrumental in helping us plan and organize this trip. Huge thank you to our fabulous parents who chaperoned and fared the RAIN with us on the way home! Such an adventure.

This Week’s Global Arts Schedule

He is an adventurous guinea pig and would love to come see your house this summer. Currently there is no one signed up to take care of Lenny this summer.

Please help your child check their backpack, under the seats of the car, in their closet, and under their beds for books that belong to the school. An easy way to tell is to check if the book has a circle sticker in the upper right or left hand corner of the cover with a number on it. If it has one of these stickers, please return the book to school. Also, if your family has outgrown books or your bookshelves, please consider donating books to the classroom. We like to keep our classroom libraries fresh and updated and donated books are much appreciated!
Your child will have information glued into their reading notebook about summer reading recommendations. Please look for it when all supplies come home on Thursday.
Students Dreambox accounts will be active until July 25th. We recommend students do some Dreambox over the summer, suggestion of 45 minutes over the course of a week.
