Mrs. Menta's Message

Happy Sunny Saturday!

My kids and I have been soaking up as much of this nice weather as we can this week and weekend, as the colder temps are headed our way unfortunately. Hopefully, it's just for a short time and we can get back to the 70s and 80s!

Well, the end of the year madness has begun! Our staff is in the middle of finishing out curriculum with their students, working on transition projects for the 23-24 school year and planning all of the end of the year festivities! It's a busy, but incredibly exciting time of the year for all of us! Please don't forget to keep track of all that's happening by reading through our newsletter each week. We understand there is a lot of information in here, but it's our goal to ensure you are well prepared and informed each week! The calendar below should help greatly! Take a peek!

Keep your eyes peeled next week for information on Field Day and Lunch on the Lawn. These are two big end of the year events for Craddock. Field Day will be held on Friday, May 19th and it will be structured similarly to last year. We are hoping for lots of parent volunteers to help! It's a really great day! The volunteer sign up will be out next week!

In addition, on the last day of school our 2nd graders get to have Lunch on the Lawn with their family from 12-1. First graders are not permitted to attend. Families are then welcome to take their child home for the summer! It's a wonderful event that our students look forward to as soon as they enter Craddock! More information to come!

We wish you a wonderful week! We are in the home stretch at this point! Hang in there! You have been such an incredible support all year long to your child and the staff at Craddock. We could not be more appreciative!

As always, don't hesitate to reach out with questions, concerns or feedback.

Take care,

Kim Menta
