Orrick Elementary Bearcat Update
The Final Countdown to Summer Break
I hope this final newsletter of the year finds everyone ready for the last hustle and bustle week before school dismisses for the summer. It is really difficult to believe how this school year seemed to fly by us. It is great to hear the sounds and sights of spring with the birds tweeting, flowers blooming, and warmer temperatures! Our elementary has been buzzing with exciting events and we hope that you have had an opportunity to be involved.
Effort and perseverance describe our 3-6 grade students during their MAP testing week. The teachers and staff were very proud of these kiddos! I am proud of the diligence and hard work our students and teachers showed as we continue to work together to provide our students the BEST possible education.
A new celebration for this spring is our ART SHOW. It is on Tuesday, May 10 in an open house format from 5:00-7:00 pm in our school library. The art work that your students have created this year is stunning and we hope that the whole community can come in and take a look!
Many of our students are participating in summer school this year. Be on the look out for a detailed packet about everything you need to know including dates, times, daily schedules and field trip information.
I am sending out a huge shout out and THANK YOU to the members of the Orrick Elementary PTO for all their work this year to make this year AWESOME for both the staff and students. We just want you to know how much we appreciate you each and every day!
We look forward to ending our school year strong and with a bang! To our sixth grade families who are moving on up to the junior high, thank you for your contributions for making our school such an awesome place. See you all at awards on the last day of school.
