END OF THE YEAR EVENTS -- 4TH GRADE FINALE AND WALK OF HONOR

This year, in lieu of award ceremonies, on Thursday, May 30th, at 9:00 am, we will be having a special "Fourth Grade Finale" and “Walk of Honor” as we celebrate with our fourth grade students who will be leaving David Elementary. Fourth grade students will be recognized and given a certificate during the Finale celebration in the gym. Parents are invited to attend this event and are welcome to bring instruments, party blowers, etc...anything that will make noise for the Walk of Honor, which will take place immediately following the "Fourth Grade Finale" celebration! We ask that you refrain from bringing Silly String, confetti, or anything that is difficult for our custodians to clean up.


Students in 2nd and 3rd grade will receive awards in their classroom to bring home. All students will participate in field day activities as listed below:

CLINIC NEWS

End of Year Medication

If your child has medication stored in the clinic, you will receive a letter next week. All medicines must be picked up by an adult no later than Thursday, May 30th, at 12 noon (medication cannot be sent home with a student). We are unable to store medication over the summer—items remaining after May 31st will be discarded. Emergency medications (inhalers, epinephrine, antihistamines) should remain at school until our last day.


Clothing

If you child has borrowed clothing from the clinic, please return these items so they may be used by other students. Most items are labeled “Please return to David Clinic.”

It has been a pleasure to care for and get to know your children this year. Wishing you all a safe and happy summer. See you in August!
