Florence Update

May 20, 2016

Dear Florence Families,

It was another great week at Florence Elementary! We are winding down, but still have a lot going on. This week we had our Third Grade Reading Restaurant, our fourth graders visited BCI, we had our Falcon Press Celebration, hosted the Star Lab in the library, and we held our Kindergarten Orientation for next year's new friends.

Thank you to our PTA for providing snacks and a sneak peak of the Spirit Store to our new families and students during the orientation. Thanks, too, to Jamie Farrar and her volunteers for all the great work with the Falcon Press and encouraging our young authors to keep writing.

Have a great weekend!
