Field Day 2022!

Big "Thank you" to Mr. Crane for putting on an amazing Field Day! He worked late and came in at 6:00 a.m. on Friday morning to make field day happen. Also, "Thank you!" to Mrs. Greer and our PTO for providing all of the snacks. Lastly, "Thank you!" to our former Yake volunteers for running all of the events. Our Gators had lots of fun!

Summer Learning Opportunities!

To help keep learning going all summer long, we will be sending home the Michigan Learning Channel Summer Fun Activity Book with every Gator on the last day of school. Please see attachment #1 for more information about the summer learning book, which is replacing ThinkStretch.

The second attachment includes information about 5 super-fun check-ins that will be taking place this summer. There will be gift-card drawings as well as fun activities and treats at each of the meet-ups. Details about the activities and treats will be shared soon.

Please review the images belo, watch the video and be sure to ask your Gators about the summer learning books when they bring them home on Wednesday.

Happy Learning!

Birthday Celebrations!

Birthday Celebrations!

Every child’s birthday is important. However, we must take more care when sending birthday treats to school. In addition to pandemic related precautions, we must also consider student food allergies, student diabetes, and our national push for healthy eating. If you wish to send a prepackaged birthday treat, you will need to either send the treats in with your child in the morning or pull into one of the parent parking spots and call the office to have us come out and pick up the treats from you. Please make sure that the pre-packaged treats have the ingredients listed on the packages. Please label the treats with your child’s name and classroom teacher. Parents will not be allowed to deliver treats into their child’s classroom.

Just a reminder about morning line-ups and inclement weather (please see below). Please note that inclement weather involves heavy rains, gusting wind and lightning. In light rain conditions, umbrellas and raincoats work nicely for our Gators.
