# Ms. Borgert's Weekly Buzz

## Notes from the teacher

What a beautiful day we had for our trip to the zoo on Friday! Thank you so much to all of the chaperones who gave us their day to help make this a smooth and fun trip for our class! They were wiped out when we returned!

Here are a few things to remember this week for our countdown to the end of school:

Wednesday: Have your child bring in something for show and tell

Thursday: Bring in a beach towel for our picnic lunch outside (or in the classroom if it rains)

Friday: Have your child wear sneakers and their PURPLE class t-shirt for field day activities! Hopefully no rain on this day!!!

Just for planning purposes, please have your child wear their purple t-shirt on the last day of school for our Kindergarten Recognition Program.

If you want your child to be able to swap some books at Mrs. Hopper’s “Super Summer Book Exchange” in the library, remember you can send in up to 10 books for your child to exchange for others that have been turned into the library.

Hope you have had a great weekend!
