A Note From Mrs. Waters

On Sunday, May 8th, we will be having a writer's cafe. We would like to invite all parents to come and hear a poem written by your child. This will take place in our classroom at 8:50am. Since it is Mother's Day, we'll do something a little extra for our moms.

Next week the students will be taking the Gates test for reading. Please make sure that your child is getting plenty of rest, is eating breakfast and has a healthy snack and lunch.

We have started the ABC countdown to the end of the year. Please be sure to check the calendar daily in case your child needs to wear something or bring something in to school that day.

Next week is the last week of ASAs (After School Activities).
