KidsFit Mobile Run

On Wednesday, May 24, our class will be participating in the KidsFit Mobile Run with Mrs. Torrance. It will take place at ZWest utilizing their track and field. We will walk from Stonegate and meet the 500 Festival staff there. This is an exciting opportunity as it is a FIRST TIME event for the 500 Festival KidsFit Program and our school was selected as the winner of this special opportunity. Kids will complete a 1-mile run around the track and be treated to an official start/finish line, runner services items, participant ribbon, and a post-race celebration. The post-race celebration will be an opportunity for photo ops with Festival Car & KidsFit banner, IMS flag display information and an opportunity to practice flag waving skills. There is nothing you need to do other than to please send your child to school in his/her Jog-A-Thon shirt, if possible!

Memory Book Surprise Letter

I have received 19 out of 24 surprise letters for your child's memory book! If you have not yet done so, please write a special note to your child on a piece of paper and send it to school by Monday. This will be put in their memory books and is a very special keepsake for them.

Miss McGee

Miss McGee's last official day with us was yesterday. However, she will be back on the last day of school to say good-bye and spend a little extra time with the kids. I was planning to get a gift card for her before she heads to college. I will give this to her on the last day of school. If you'd like to chip in, please put the money in an envelope and I will put it towards her gift. We will also be making her a book with letters from each child.

Mystery Readers

If you have not yet been a mystery reader and would like to do so next week, please let me know what your availability is and I will make sure to fit you in! (Any day of the week is fine.)
