May is Our Last Month Togehter!

I hope you know how proud I am of each of you! You did a great job as a leadership group this year and I can't wait to see where the future takes each of you.
But we still have a month together and LOTS TO DO IN MAY!
May 2-6 is Teacher Appreciation Week. We have a Coca-Cola themed treats for every day that week!

BOOK DRIVE TIME!

Please clean out your book shelves and bring us all your kid books that you no longer read! We are seeking donations for all ages of children. Our Reading Specialist will use the books we collect to create a special summer book bag for students who might not have books on their level at home to read over the summer. We will collect books May 2-23. Drop off donations in the main hallway in the McCall Bucket!

TIme to Pay It Forward and Train the New Leaders!

This year's 3rd graders will be turning in their final applications for membership as 4th graders on May 9th. We will spend some time the afternoon of our STAAR Reading test preparing our annual training session where YOU, as 4th grade leaders will train the 3rd graders!
We will break into 2 groups. One group will be responsible for going over "Leadership Responsibilities" and the other group will go over "Annual Student Council Activities".
We will meet to plan this on May 10th from 1:30-2:30 and then you will carry out the actual training at our after school meeting from 2:45-3:30 on May 17.
