May 2015 Field Day!

Hello Families,

What a wonderful time we had at the Ft. Worth Zoo! Thank you to the parents that helped us out and chaperoned! Please email any fun pictures.

Please look in your child's Take Home Folder on Monday. I'm sending home an important information letter about our Mustang Marketplace. This fun project integrates our Math and Social Studies units and the kids love it! This letter has important due dates so please keep it in your child's folder until the end of Marketplace.

We have Field Day this Friday, May 8th. Coach Kettle has asked third graders to wear a blue shirt. Kids can also wear hats and sunglasses as long as they keep up with them. Please bring a water bottle and sunscreen your child before they come to school. We will most likely eat in the classroom so please no lunch visitors on Friday.
