Hello Families,

We had a wonderful time at the Arboretum this week! We got very lucky with the weather. Thank you to all the moms that spent the day helping us!

Last Friday was our last spelling test for the year! There will be no more homework this school year. I do still encourage Istation and Fasttmath and reading everyday but there will not be an assignment for your child. I have had several parents ask about access to Istation and Fasttmath over the summer. I was told that Istation WOULD be available to your child however I haven't received an answer yet about Fasttmath. But I do encourage keeping up with those addition and subtraction facts over the summer. There are many different websites to play speed drills. There are several on our website. Flashcards are also a great way to practice!

Homestead Field Day will be this Friday. Please have your student wear a blue shirt on that day. The cafeteria will have a sandwich sack lunch available to purchase on Field Day. There will not be a "hot lunch" option. Please see the email I sent out last week from PTA to sign up to volunteer for Field Day.

Please send your child's camp hat (baseball cap) and camp mail by this Wednesday, May 18th. Please make sure each camp letter is labeled with your child's name on every envelope and day 1, day 2, etc. We will have 5 days of camp mail.

The last day to order books from Scholastic will be this Tuesday. This would be an inexpensive way to purchase books to keep your student reading over the summer! Please click the link below to order online. All orders are due by May 17th.
