Finally, some nice weather to play outside!

Two envelopes

Two envelopes will be coming home in Monday's red folder. In the red envelope is an invitation to our 5th grade send off. In the manilla colored envelope is for you to write "My Wish" which is a wish that you have for your son/daughter. We will be creating a memory book of 5th grade and one of the pages will be kept blank for your message to your child. Please complete it and send it back in the manilla envelope. It is really fun to keep it a secret until we work on that page. Please send it back by Friday, May 18th.

Silent Auction Basket

Our silent auction basket theme is "Games Galore." Please bring in a donation for our basket.
