Parent Notes

I hope you enjoyed some special time with your child during spring break. Get ready for lots of learning before the end of first grade! Time will fly during the next two months! Please remember to find some time each day for your child to read. Reading for AT LEAST 15 minutes EVERYDAY will ensure that your child will continue to make reading progress as they prepare for 2nd grade.


THERE ARE MATH VIDEOS THIS WEEK ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY ONLY THERE ARE ALSO EXTRA VIDEOS WHICH CAN BE WATCHED ANYTIME FOR FUN AND PRACTICE!


Please remember to charge you child's iPad at home each night. We use the iPad a lot at school and it is difficult when the iPad has limited charge or no charge.


PLEASE SAVE THESE DATES:

Friday, May 20th! We will have our parent program at school. All parents/families are encouraged to attend. Our program will be at 12:45 and will last about an hour.


Friday, June 3rd! Our annual field trip to the MN Zoo. We encourage all families to join us for the trip to the zoo at a greatly discounted admission price. Siblings (not current Middleton students) are encouraged to join us. This is an all day trip.


BACKGROUND CHECKS ARE REQUIRED FOR ADULTS TO ATTEND THE ZOO FIELD TRIP WITH THE CLASS! GET YOURS EARLY!!!! BACKGROUND CHECKS REMAIN IN FORCE AS LONG AS YOU VOLUNTEER AT LEAST ONCE PER YEAR! PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED THE FORMS. OR SEE THE LINK BELOW FOR BOTH NEEDED FORMS.


Did you know the entire school needs to be packed for the summer due to construction? With the daunting task ahead the school board has adjusted the last day of school for Middleton students. Our last day of school will NOW be on June 9th.
