Students should have brought home a yellow paper asking for help with Dr. Clark's retirement celebration. Please see your PTA newsletter if you didn't get one.

This Friday, we are having an ice cream sundae bar. I am supplying the ice cream and need the students to bring toppings. We will discuss this tomorrow and they will write their topping in their agendas. You may send it in early (unless it's fresh fruit of course) if you like. There are no nut allergies in the class. My husband is coming to help, but I could use a few more hands. let me know if you're interested. We'll start about 1:35 outside at recess.

Social Studies - The pilot test will be Monday 5/11 and Tuesday 5/12. It is taken on the computer. IT WILL NOT COUNT FOR A GRADE, so the should be no stress. We will just do our best. AND THAT IS ALL.
