Notes from the teacher

Hello parents!

I cannot believe that the end of April is already here. As you probably have seen with all of the paperwork coming home, May will be a busy time for us! Please continue to make sure to be checking folders for paperwork for different upcoming events this month. I'll make sure to send a heads up email when different things are coming home.

Some items you may still have at home are for Muffins in May next Friday, zoo field trip and the Lemonade day permission slip.

We took the Math portion of our NWEA testing today and will do the Reading on Monday afternoon. For those who were not here, they will be able to make the Math portion up on Monday in the small room in between mine and Mrs. Bill's rooms.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! I can't believe we only have nineteen more school days. I am truly going to miss all of your amazing children next week. I am so thankful every day to have each of them in my class!
