End of the Year is Upon us!

It is so crazy to think that we are 14 days away from summer! I am truly sad to see this class go. They are such a fun, energetic, thoughtful, creative, and sweet class. To tell you the truth I do not want to let them go! However, they are super excited for summer and 6th grade.

We will be using the Great Body Shop curriculum called "Growing up". A permission slip was sent home today, May 4th, with more information. Please make sure that you sign and return the slip no later than Friday, May 12.

Filed Day

We will have Field Day May 19th. We will be out on the field starting around 9:00 and go until 12:00 ish. A finalized schedule will soon be out, check for it in the Thursday Blast.


Please remember to have your child:

  • Wear comfortable clothes, sunscreen, sunglasses and tennis shoes.

  • Bring a hat and water bottle with their name on it.

Summer Birthday Celebrations

We have many kids who have birthdays during summer and would like to celebrate. If your child has a birthday during the summer months, they are welcome to bring in treats for our class of 25 on May 19.
