Crystal Apple Award - Seeking parents for Nomination Committee
Thank you for all of the written nominations for the Horace Mann Crystal Apple Award. I'm now looking to form a committee of parents who have 4th graders only. Please contact me if you are interested in reviewing the nominations with other parents during a meeting to be held soon. I can only include parents who did not submit a nomination.
We are looking for more parents to help at the 4th grade picnic
We have two 4th grade parents who have volunteered to assist with the picnic. Please contact Mrs. Poore if you are interested in volunteering to cook hamburgers and hot dogs at the 4th Grade Picnic on Tuesday, June 14th. We are also looking for a parent who can bring and use a grill.
Caterpillars on Playground
We are seeing small caterpillars on the lower field during PE and recess. We have reminded students that these creatures are part of nature. Parents can put insect repellant on their child prior to school. Sunscreen is also optional and should be applied at home prior to school.
Outdoor Classroom Space
The next meeting will take place onsite on Saturday, May 14th at 10:30 am.
Yearbook photos needed
If you have have taken photos this year while attending a school or PTO sponsored event, please consider sending them to this designated email address. We are also in need of photos of current 4th graders since they started here in Kindergarten.
Thank you to Erin Manni for donating her time and energy to create our school yearbook.
Thank you to Mrs. Crawford for helping to beautify our school!
