Round Top-Carmine Elementary News - May 2016

Principal's Corner by Mrs. Flasowski

May is here, and we have lots of teaching and learning left to do. Please check the upcoming events below, as we have several items coming up. The end of the semester will be Thursday, May 26th, and I look forward to seeing you at the Elementary Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, May 24th at 6:30pm.

Great Expectations

It's time to say good-bye
Our year has come to an end.

I've made more cherished memories
and many more new friends.

I've watched your child learn and grow
and change from day to day.

I hope that all the things we've done
Have helped in some small way.

So it's with happy memories
I send them out the door,
With great hope and expectations
for what next year holds in store.
