Pen-Pal Field Trip Date Correction

I managed to schedule our field trip on a day when we don't have school! I sent an e-mail last night, but if you didn't already please recycle the permission slip that went home yesterday and look for the new one coming home today with the corrected date! The new and actual date of this field trip will be Thursday May 26th!

We will be going to Emerald Glen Park in Dublin to meet our fourth grade pen-pal class in person! We will be eating lunch with our pals and playing games. This field trip is free! We do need drivers so please let Jennifer Harris or myself know if you are able to drive. Students will need to bring a peanut-free sack lunch and a booster seat if they are under 8. If your child has their class shirt at home, please have them wear it on the day of the field trip!

Dinosaur Report

Your child came home with directions for their Dinosaur Report project in their Friday Folders last week. Attached to the directions was a fact sheet all about their assigned dinosaur. Your child may research additional information online or from books if they wish. All projects are due on Friday May 20th. There is no additional homework for these two weeks. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have questions.

Thank You Moms!

Thank you so much to all of our Extraordinary Moms for coming to Mother's Day Tea last week! The children and I loved hosting you and celebrating your special day. I hope you all enjoyed it and had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. I shared the video slideshow with all of your last week, but if you were unable to open it or view it please let me know and I can try again!

Thank you so much for all of the sweet cards, flowers, gifts, lunches, and contributions toward all the things that made teacher appreciation week so wonderful! I am beyond blessed to have 24 incredibly kind and thoughtful families in my class. I felt so lucky and loved last week and I hope you all know how appreciated each and every gesture was. Thank you, thank you!
