Crazy to think it is time to be wrapping the school year up, but we are so proud of our kiddos and all they have accomplished this year! We encourage you to keep reading over the summer but most importantly enjoy time outside, play games, soak up the sunshine, spend time with family and friends, and make lots of memories! Thank you for all of your support this year!
We also have field day on May 19th, and a Field Trip on May 23rd. We have quite a few first graders performing in the talent show on May 26 as well!
First grade is doing well finishing out the year. Although the snow threw a wrench in our summer moods, we are excited to get outside once the weather warms up.
We will be sending home packets for the kids to read over the summer. There is also the ELITE summer program and the BookIt reading program that is partnered with Pizza Hut. If parents need assistance with Book It, please contact Miss Lashmett and she can assist them.
