Warm Weather Attire
- T-shirt-style shirts are the simplest choice. They cover all that needs to be covered.
- Please avoid shirts that expose the torso due to a mid-waist length, or large arm holes allowing the torso and/or undergarments to be seen.
- Sandal-style shoes are to have a firm sole and heel strap. No flip-flop styles.
- Sneakers are best. They protect the foot and allow for easy running and play.
- Water bottles for recess are permitted.
- Hats for recess are also permitted.
- Please apply sun-screen at home.

Race for Education Information
On Friday, April 26th, beginning at 2:30 PM, our students will be doing their part by running/walking around the upper field of the Pearl Buck campus. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to join us for this fun event. More information will be sent after the break.
Are you ready to ABACA?
Rondo form follows the pattern of ABACA. In the photos below, students can be seen creating their rhythmic rondo, choosing from a quarter note, quarter rest, a pair of eighth notes, and a half note. Any rhythmic combination equaling four beats was allowed. After deciding on the rhythm pattern for each section, students practiced and performed their rondo for Mr. Duke.

Be Allergy Aware!
Due to varied allergy and dietary needs, please contact your child's teacher before sending in food or other items intended to be distributed to students in a classroom (e.g. birthday celebrations, class parties). Students should not share food at any time during school - even with a close friend. A seemingly harmless food item may unexpectedly contain allergens, or interact with other medical conditions. Depending on the health needs within a classroom, teachers may choose to avoid food-oriented experiences altogether. Please consider non-food treats as an alternative. Speak directly with your child's teacher. Do not send in any items until the teacher has responded and confirmed the appropriateness of your request. Thanks!
