What is going on?

Next week- I will be sending home individual end of the year growth reports. This will be your copy to keep. You don't need to send it back signed. Report cards will be going home on the last day of school.

Dear Families,

2nd grade would like to have Student Appreciation Week the last full week of school (May 20 - May 23) to honor the wonderful students that fill our rooms.

We thought it would be exciting if we could do several activities that would make our last week together fun and memorable!

Here’s our schedule to put on the fridge:

Monday, May 20: Hats off to a great year! Wear your favorite hat (or crazy hair) and bring a Board Game (non-electronic). *All games must have child’s name visible to ensure each game goes home with to person who brought it.

Tuesday, May 21: Escape to a world of reading!! Wear your pajamas! You can bring a blanket, a small pillow, and a stuffed animal to enjoy a day of reading in our room! Don’t forget tennis shoes for recess. *Bring your yearbooks or memory books today to collect signatures from all your friends!* (Don’t have a yearbook or memory book? We’ll make one in class)

Wednesday, May 22: Party Day! & Bubbles, Oh MY! Party at 8:45-9:10 in the morning and then bubble day in the afternoon! It doesn’t get better than that. Bring your bubbles and bubble toys – I’ll bring the bubble gum!!

Thursday, May 23: Let’s pop into summer! Fun Friday and a movie in the afternoon! I’ll provide the popcorn! (We will be going outside to watch 5th grade’s Flugtag in the morning so bring your sunglasses and a beach towel!)

Thanks a bunch!

Box Tops - Due 5/15/19

Clip out Box Tops coupons found on many common food items and household products.

Send them in to school in an envelope/baggie labeled with your child’s grade level.

Kids can turn them in to their teacher or bring them to Coach O in the gym.

Each valid Box Top we receive is worth 10¢ for our school. With your help, this adds up to big money! All the cash earned from collecting Box Tops is used for programs that directly benefit each student at Patsy Sommer Elementary.

· Ask your family & friends to save their Box Tops also!

For more information on the Box Tops for Education program, including a full list of participating products and valuable grocery coupons, please visit:

Dear Parents: If your child has medication in the nurse's office, please pick it up on or before the end of the school day on Thursday May 23, 2019. No medication will be sent home with a student and no medication will be left in the nurse’s office over the summer. If not picked up, it will be disposed of properly.

Thank you,
