Important News and Notes

Field Trip- May 30th, we'll leave around 9a.m. Remember we're trying to pack our lunch "old fashioned", but please don't stress or fret over this :-) Water bottles may be brought for students to have hydration throughout the day.

Summer math and reading opportunities will be sent home in the coming days. It's super important to focus on this over the summer so that progress isn't lost! Even just 8-10 books read over the summer can help prevent summer learning loss!

Book Exchange- June 4th, students can be bringing in books (up to 10) to put in the exchange. They pick out as many books as they bring in. A great way to get some new summer reading!
