Lemonade Day was a Success!!

Thank you to all who sent in money to buy lemonade! What an amazing fundraiser for our fourth graders and I love seeing all the support from the younger students!

White T-Shirts NEEDED!

On Monday, we will be tie dying old white t-shirts to wear on field day! Please bring in an old white shirt by THIS MONDAY for us to use! Those who don't bring one in, can plan to wear their 2nd Grade gray TCE shirt instead. Thanks for your help with this project!!!


Field Day

Field Day will be on Friday, May 20th. The theme this year is "Summer Olympics" and the country we will be representing is AUSTRALIA!!! We will be doing different activities outside for most of the morning so please be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather . If you would like your child to wear sunscreen, please apply it before sending him/her to school. Also, if you are interested in volunteering for field day, please fill out the paperwork that was sent home earlier this week and return it as soon as possible. We are looking forward to this fun day!!

Mrs. Holman (Kennedy's mommy) will be coming in this Wednesday to share pictures and information about her homeland...AUSTRALIA! She even offered to bring in an Australian cookie called, Tim Tam's for the class to taste! Below is a picture of the ingredients. Please let me know if your child can NOT have them!

We are Learning...

The last 9 days of school will be spent finishing up any projects we are still working on, then we will be reviewing lots of skills we've worked on all year long! We may even spend the last few days dipping into some 3rd grade standards! I am so proud of the hard work each child has put into making this year so great! I am terribly sad I only get 9 more days with each of your sweet children!
