SPRING RIDGE ES FRIDAY FLYER

MAY 27, 2016

SMORE NEWS FOR THE WEEKEND...

Staff,


Bet your bottom dollar—Annie was a true hit! Thank you to Kim Woods for directing this performance and the many folks that spent many hours of their time ensuring that our students truly shined last night!


We know that it may seem like it’s always a day away, but as we coming into the “homestretch” and with the weather FINALLY cooperating, we are excited to see that the level of rigorous instruction still continues with every student, every lesson, and every day! Engagement of students is continuing through motivating, integrated, and meaningful learning. Thank you for continuing to have high expectations as we continue to move full STEAM ahead toward the end of the school year!


So ya gotta hang on until the last week of school for student lists. Grouping for next year is underway. Thank you classroom teachers for completing these on time so that we are able to stay on schedule to have classroom lists to you the last full week of school.

Remember the sun will come out tomorrow! And as we approach these very warm days ahead, be sure to give students adequate drink breaks when they come in from outdoors!


Have a great long weekend!


Patty and Justin
