Let's Sell Some Goods!

So for our last Classroom Auction I have told the kids we will set up little shops in the classroom and buy and sell things using classroom cash (money earned in the classroom).

We will do this Wednesday, May 25th (next Wednesday). They are allowed to make anything at home, or bring anything from home with your permission to sell in the classroom. NO REAL MONEY will be used! Let me know if you have questions!

Donuts with Dads


Friday, June 3rd, 8:00-8:30am


Mrs. Park's Classroom (Rm. 23)


To celebrate Father's Day early, we are inviting all dads (step-dads too!) to a donut breakfast before school. I will supply all of the donuts, coffee and juice. You supply the dad and kid!

Field Trip-Save the Date

We will be walking to the plastic park across from Clover Beach on Thursday, June 9th. We'll go from 11:30-2:00ish. A permission slip will be coming home soon.

Field Day Volunteers

Mrs. Wright is in need of volunteers for Field Day festivities on Friday, May 27. Volunteers are needed to work at specific stations during the afternoon. All volunteers need to report by 12:30 p.m. Field Day runs from 1:00-3:30 p.m. Please return your volunteer form to your child’s teacher by Friday, May 20.

A change is coming....

I've spoken to a few parents about this, so forgive me for repeating myself. As the school year winds down I often notice a change in the kids--some happy, some excited, some nervous, some sad and some with all of these emotions wrapped into one little 9-year-old body. As parents we LOVE, LOVE our children, but we are also busy running them around and trying to remember what you volunteered for and when you're supposed to send everything in and what to make for dinner!! I get it! My point--your little 3rd grader is going through a pretty big change right now....ending school and starting summer and for many change is tough. So, if they are acting a little more hyper than usual, or a little more stubborn than usual, then this big change might be part of the reason. This year the change is even bigger because they will be leaving Hyatt and going to Central next year.

Give them extra squeezes and remember that you're all amazing parents!
