Thursday May 14- Going to the pool!
On Thursday, May 14th , the fourth grade will be going to Adamson Lagoon for our end of the year swimming party. After we swim, we will eat a picnic lunch at Bee Creek Park. We have reserved the pool for our fourth grade students from 10-12 and the covered pavilion from 12-2.
Your student must wear their swimsuit to school under their clothe. Girls are required to wear a one piece swimsuit (or a tankini). We will be going to CAMP in the morning before we leave, so please wear tennis shoes to school.
The life guards will require students to be able to pass a swim test in order to swim in the deep end without a life jacket. They need to be able to swim the width of the shallow end without stopping and putting their feet down. They may stop at the far end of the pool before swimming back.
When we return, the students will be given time to change into other clothes if needed. Here are some items that you may wish to send to school:
- Extra Clothes
- Sack lunch and drink or two
Please email your child's homeroom teacher if your child cannot swim, thank you.
Fourth Grade Picnic May 27
I am in need of water balloons. If you happen to see a pack at the grocery store or Walmart please send them this way.
I also need families to volunteer to fill up the water balloons. Please email me if you and your child are willing to fill up roughly 50-70 balloons. Wednesday morning, we will meet you with the gates open in the parent drop off line for you to drop off water balloons. We ask you to store them in a bucket, cooler, trash can, or even trash bag with some water in it. This is a fun event to come and watch.
Picnic Lunch at 11:30
