Fifth Fest and Field Trip

We have a lot of exciting things coming up this month. In Friday folder, there were papers about Fifth Fest and the Field Trip to Northbrook. Please make sure that you read over these. I need permission slips back for the field trip as soon as possible.

Also please consider signing up for volunteer at Fifth Fest. Here is the link for that.

Last Day for Charging Lunches

Dear Parent/Guardian,

May 5th is the last day that charging will be allowed on meal accounts. We can take payments in cash or check here at the school, or on line at
Payments can be made at anytime up until the last day of school. Any child with out sufficient funds after May 5th will be given a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a milk until all charges are paid in full. (An alternative meal will be offered to those with a peanut allergy.) Please be sure to keep all accounts current through the end of the school year. Charge letters will be sent home daily during the month of May.

Thank you,
Pam Stone
