Florence Update

May 8, 2015

Dear Florence Families,

Happy Florence Spirit Day!!!! There was a lot going on at Florence Elementary this week. Our fourth graders enjoyed a soggy Fourth Grade Play Day and had a great time! We were proud at how well they represented Florence Elementary!

We held our Student Council officer interest meeting for third graders and welcomed our new Kindergateners for next year with our Kindergarten Orientation Thursday afternoon.

We also honored our Watchdogs this morning for their commitment and dedication to helping us stay safe and mentoring our students! Click here for the slideshow of all our "Dogs" and their children.

It is hard to believe that we only have four weeks of school left! We still have lots to do, so thank you for your continued support and commitment to our school.

Have a great Mother's Day weekend!
