Beach Buddies' Bulletin

May 26-29

It can't be true! We are down to 2 days of school! This awesome group of buddies doesn't seem to have "summer fever" yet. We are plugging away with many regular routines to make the most of these final days.
A sincere THANK YOU for attending our Beach Buddies gathering and concert on Wednesday. Your support shines through in your caring kids. It was a special night! It's always so hard for me to talk through all my emotions on that night. I had so much more to say...but I could feel myself losing it! Can't let the kids see that happen, right!? :) You truly have amazing kids that have made our year such a wonderful one. I couldn't have asked for more! These young people are going to make a difference in the world! I am thankful I could play a little role in the start of their education in Annandale.

On Monday your kindergartner will be coming home with the REAL and UPDATED version of Wednesday's slideshow. Burning DVD's isn't always perfect! Please let me know if yours does not work. I will gladly burn you another. Like I said on Wednesday, if you would like to have a "file" to put on a hard drive instead, just let me know and we can do that.

Photo folder

I will soon be sending out an invite to view our photo folder for those of you that were interested. If you didn't write your name on the sheet after the gathering and want to have access to the photos, just let me know!

Got Books?

Please be looking for any book bags, class books, or activity packs that belong to our classroom. We appreciate you sending them back to school soon!

Sunny Beach Buddy book borrowing

It is not too late to be a part of our summer book borrowing program. Just respond to this email and I will add you to the list. The exchange nights are Tuesday, June 30 and Monday, July 27 from 6:00-7:00 in our classroom. If you are involved, your kindergartner will be bringing home their first backpack of books on Monday. Please consider this option to help your child keep up with "just right" reading this summer.

Fun and Fitness

As you know, Fun and Fitness will now be THIS Monday, June 1st. Kindergarten is on the track from 12:00-12:45. Parents are welcome to meet us in the bleachers to watch. Remember to wear our class shirts -- we will be TEAM ZUEHLKE that day! We are ready to go! We may have been doing a little practicing in the classroom too.....GO BEACH BUDDIES!!! :)
