Our end of year, buy one get one book fair is next week! Students will have a chance to preview the book fair on Monday. They will be able to make purchases during recess on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The late night will be on Thursday, and the book fair will be open until 6:00 that night only.

Chromebook End of Year Procedure

We are still missing a few computer chargers. If your child has an extra charger that they brought home by accident, please send it in. A letter has been sent home dealing with the charges that unreturned materials will cost.

Creekside Field Trip

May 13th is our field trip to Creekside Retirement Community and the culmination of weeks of work and exploration in our plants PBL unit! We will be walking there and back. The field trip is after lunch so there is no need to send anything special. On our trip we will be presenting the retirees with plants in pots we are decorating ourselves. We will also share our plant scrapbook we have been creating over the past few weeks and explain how to best care for our plants. What an exciting conclusion to our exploration!

Class Materials Wrap Up

Its that time of the year, and I would like to ask all my students and Team McKinney families to take a moment and make sure that none of our class materials such as text books, class library books, or math materials ended up in a backpack by accident and taken home. Usually one or two class library books end up somewhere else each year and I really appreciate it when they get sent back! Thanks for taking the time to take a quick look around just in case.
