4th Grade Newsletter~Mrs Meridith

March 21-25


I hope everyone had a wonderful Spring Break!!!

Thank you to everyone I met with for conferences.

On April 1st, Cottonwood/Sunflower PTO will be hosting their annual Dinner and Auction. Each class is paired with another class in collecting items for our basket to auction off. We are teamed with Mrs. Pitzer's class in collecting items for our "Baking" basket. If you would like to help donate items for our basket, please feel free to send them in with your child.

There will also be a 4th grade teacher experience that will be auctioned off at our auction. It will be the "Amazing Race." It is always a blast for the kids. Please join us on Friday, April 1st. All the money raised will be divided to both Cottonwood and Sunflower to help purchase items for our school.
