News to Know....for the week of May 16, 2016
Belated thanks to Mrs. Hernandez, Mrs. Schulz, Mrs. Sanford, Mrs. Huerta, Mrs. Helou, Mrs. Fuentes, Mrs. Burdge and Mrs. Patrick who drove us to Riley's Farm...the kids loved the trip and we couldn't have made it there without you. I hope you enjoyed the learning along with the kids!
The kids had an A- average on their final states/capitals test last Friday! That is a lot to learn and most really buckled down to memorize them all - I'm very proud of their efforts! They got to show off their knowledge at the talent show - great job on that too!! :)

CAN YOU HELP? We need military uniforms (or the like) for our show. We already have the Marines taken care of, but we still need something for Army, Navy, and Air Force. If there is anyone who knows of someone who could loan us a uniform (even if just a coat or hat) it would be appreciated. Thank you!
