Jeffers Pond Friday Outlook
May 20, 2016
Please see the Schoology Calendar for upcoming events.
Next year we will be doing taste tests of fruits and vegetables with students once or twice every month. We hope to expand their taste buds and have them try something new!
Food Truck coming: We will be hosting the Wandering Mug Food truck, owned by a former Prior Lake graduate, Bo Brunner on May 26 at 7:45 in the lower parking lot. See the website if you are interested in checking it out.
Textbook inventory: Leadership teams are asked to take an inventory of all the books in your grade level. Please enter that information into the shared Google Doc in the leadership folder by May 27th. With more rooms being used this year, please store your books in your grade level work room. If some textbooks don't fit, please include a note on the textbook inventory where the books can be found.
Student Book Bags for next year: If you need ziplock bags for your books, please let Marcia know.

Please let me know if you have any questions. The letters of interest are linked in the document I shared earlier this week. Please submit the letters of interest to Karoline by Wednesday, May 25th.
End of Year Celebration Video: Please submit your photos to the Google Drive Folder "End of Year Celebration Video by Monday, May 23rd at the latest. If you are able to submit those photos by today that would be of great help when putting together our 3 minute showcase for the year. As a reminder this video will be shared, along with videos from each site at the district end of year staff breakfast. Thank you for those people who have uploaded pictures already. Your leadership members can help if you have any questions. This will be a fun way to celebrate and showcase our year.

Thank you to Marcia and Denise for the extra help setting up the LCD projector and Vote May 24th materials.
Thank you to Chris for another great season of music performances!
Thank you to kindergarten and 1st grade teachers for all of their help with the program and hosting families after.
Thank you to Vicki for her help with the AIMS testing this week.
Kindergarten students explained why they added black, fluffy material to their solar oven.
Sue Mohn helped the kindergarteners learn about solar energy and test it out. They tested the solar oven by putting a jar of water in the oven and taking the temperature after it had been out in the sun for a while.
There is always time for power tools in the morning. The Kids Company students and staff are building a display using recycled materials. We can't wait to see the finished project.
