Field Trip!

We will go to Southeastway Park for our last field trip on Monday, May 2. This field trip is FREE because of a Target Field Trip Grant! Please make sure your child dresses for the weather and wears old tennis shoes. We will be outside the entire time. We will leave at 9:30 and return to school around 1:30. Parents who signed up may join us for lunch at 12:00. Be sure your child brings a disposable sack lunch.

Gator Gallop Fun Run

Ask your child about the Fun Run today! We had a blast! You can still donate to help South Creek until 8:00 am on Wednesday, May 4th at www.funrun.com .

Yearbooks

Yearbooks are in! The yearbooks are amazing this year! There are extra copies at the office. If you would like one, send in $20 and I will send it home with your child!

Pajama Day!

Friday, May 6th will be "Pajama Day" in kindergarten! We met our goal of $25.00 per lap for the Fun Run. The kids are really looking forward to it!

Dress Code Reminder

As the weather begins to warm up, I want to remind you that flip flop sandals and tank tops are not to be worn at school. Tank tops are fine if you have a jacket or sweater over them. Please make sure your child's shoes/sandals have a back strap for safety on the playground. Also, we go outside for recess each day unless it is raining. It is often still chilly at our recess time. Please make sure your child has a jacket if needed.
