FIELD DAY...A note from Mr. Monroe

Dear Chinn Families,

Our Chinn Elementary School Field Day is scheduled for Wednesday, May 20th. We are in need of parents to supervise field day stations at this event. Each class of students along with their teacher will rotate to each station for about 10-12 minutes. You will provide the students with a quick set of directions and get them started on the activity.

You can volunteer for the entire day, the morning shift from 8:30 –11:30 or the afternoon shift from 11:30-2:30. To sign up please click on the following link which will take you to the sign up document on the Sign Up Genius web page

Class Pictures

Class Pictures are still available! If you would like a class picture, please send in $5 with your child.

Also, if you have not already done so, please send in money for your child's individual Spring pictures or return the picture package if you do not wish to purchase them.

In Reader's Workshop, we will be finishing up some end of the year assessments. I am really proud of all the progress they have made in Reading this year!
