Florence Update

May 29, 2016

Dear Florence Families,

Wow! What a week!!! We packed an amazing amount of activities into this past week. We began with a great presentation of Six Flags Over Texas by our fourth grade students. Third grade finished out their Hansel and Gretel shows and we held our Student Council officer elections for the next school year. Fourth grade rocked it at Play Day on Tuesday, we held a BOGO book fair, year books were handed out, and we ended the week with our annual Mayfest. Whew!

It was a busy but a really fun week and we appreciate the help and support of PTA and all our amazing volunteers. Thank you to:

  • Marcy Lasiter - Fourth Grade Play Day
  • Pam Lane - Year books
  • Mayfest - Robyn Birkenfield
  • And out of nowhere we had three dads jump in to help with setting up risers for the inside Maypole dance. We want to thank Mr. Parkerson, Mr. Eggers, and Mr. Novoa

Thursday, June 2nd, will be our last day of school. It is a half day for students and hard copy of the report cards with a few flyers for next year will be handed out. You may also go to Home Access Center to check grades and progress.

Thanks for a great year! We hope you have a wonderful summer!
