Announcements for the week of May 1, 2017
Happy Monday and Happy May Day! After today, only 2 more Mondays! WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE?!?! We are down to the last weeks of school, and we are still working hard!
Our field trip was a success. Great weather and great fun! It was a great close of the plants unit. In science, we began keeping a diary of both our caterpillars. This is a gross (to be frank), but a very cool, hands-on unit that the kiddos love!! We are finishing our unit on the concept of multiplication/division this week and will beginning a unit on geometry in math. After this, we only have personal financial literacy. In language arts we will write sensory poems as will as work on a culminating keynote activity to go along with our research project on a famous person. We will also be doing reading groups.
Friday, May 5th – MAY MADNESS!!! 8:35 am – 11:00 am!! “Dress code” for all students is cool & comfortable shorts and shirts. Be sure to slather on sunscreen at home Friday morning. All students should have on old tennis shoes, no crocs or flip flops – they will be running A LOT and may get wet and muddy! We will be eating in the cafeteria, but just a bit later than usual. You may want to send a change of clothes for after the Madness. We will have a somewhat low-key afternoon.
Wednesday, May 17th – Volunteer Reception in the library immediately following Morning Assembly. All of you, in one form or another, have volunteered this year to make our class a better place! You are all invited to our school wide celebration of you! Hope you can make it! More info here: http://evite.me/fqKxtKQa9a
Friday, May 12th – All library books due. Please check at home for any library books that may be floating around. A list of any overdue books will come home with your child sometime in the next week or so.
Tuesday, May 23rd – Save the date! End of year party! More information to come!
Hope you all are enjoying this beautiful spring weather! That's all for now.
The school hours are 7:45-2:55. The first bell will ring at 7:40 and the tardy bell will ring at 7:45 which means school will begin promptly at 7:45. Please note that the doors into the building will not unlock until 7:15.
Entering the building in the morning will happen through 2 sets of doors. Students will enter the building through the front middle doors or the gym doors only. Students will go directly to the cafeteria and sit with their class for morning assembly. Morning assembly will start at 7:45. Students arriving to school after the tardy bell will need enter through the front office doors to receive a tardy slip.
Security and the safety of your children is our top priority. All parents attending only the morning assembly will enter the building through the gym or front middle doors. Parents will not be allowed to enter the halls or walk children to class after the morning assembly. Parents that need to remain in the building (for a conference, meeting, or to volunteer) must exit the building and sign in at the front office to obtain a visitor’s badge.
