Walking Field Trip to the Library

Dear Parents,

Tomorrow May, 5th is the day when Ms. Russo's class is walking to the library to return and check out some good reads. Please remember to make sure all kids have library cards and books that are due for return.

In Class Reading Books Needed

Ms. Russo's class already started reading an "Island of the Blue Dolphins" by Scott O'Dell. Only 6 children had the book and it would be great if all of the kids could participate and read this amazing book. Please have all of our children bring this book to the class since lots of the assignments will be based on this reading material.

Apple Fitness Challege

Please remember to sign and return permission form that allows kids to participate in the Apple Fitness Challege. Children cannot participate without endorsed permission form. The last day to turn it in is May 10th. Please return permission forms to Ms. Russo.

We're hoping to raise $50,000 so we can continue to fund our technology program. All the pledge forms that will be turned in will help fund having computers, i pads, i pods, document reader cameras, LCD projectors in our school. If each child obtains at least 10 pledges of $20 each ($200) that will greatly help us reach our overall goal. Pledge forms are also due on May 10th. We can turn in the pledges to Ms. Russo or place them into the Apple Fitness Pledge Box that will be placed in the front office.
