Where did the time go?
I hope you enjoy your summer with your children. It's always nice to have things slow down a bit. I will offer some advice, though...children grow up so quickly (I have one turning 25 on Friday and I can vividly remember walking him to his Kindergarten classroom on the first day, trying so hard to hide my tears). Take time to hold them on your lap and read to them (this class loves read aloud time). High school graduation will be here before you know it!
This Crazy Week...
*Wednesday, May 18: Stone Lion Puppet Company will visit and perform "The Emperor Penguin's Clothes." The performance will begin at 8:45, so try hard to have your child at school by that time!
*Thursday, May 19: Yearbook-signing party.
*Thursday, May 19: Last day of Kindergarten :(...normal dismissal time.
*Friday, May 20: Last day for grades 1-5...11:45 dismissal.
*Friday, May 20: Grade cards can be viewed at "Parents Online" at 4:00.
***Please make sure your child empties his/her backpack each evening. They'll be bringing lots of "treasures" home and will need the extra packing space! You might even consider sending in a large shopping bag, "just in case!"
