Mrs. Gibson's Class

Week 34: May 9-13

Lemonade Week

Fourth grade will be selling lemonade for $.50 a cup the week of May 9. A permission slip came home this past week. Your child will have the opportunity to purchase a cup of lemonade each day if they bring in their money and have a signed permission slip. This is totally optional and the money raised will go to charities of the 4th grade's choice.

Library Books

We will not check out any more library books this year. As you are finished reading library books at home, please return those books to school. You might want to search under beds and in toy boxes for missing library books as well :)

We have been busy this week with our field trip, building a garden, and collaborating with others!!!

We searched for things in the swamp at Ritchey Woods!
