Lots Going on in May!

We have several things coming up in the next few weeks that I want to make you aware of and put on your calendars.

Starting next week, we will be having our annual end-of-the-year motor lab party on Wednesday May 18th from 9:30-11:00. We are having it a week earlier due to our special trip to the CAC with Ms. Lindsey. We are in need of a few supplies that I have listed below. If you can donate any of the supplies, that would be great. Just send them in with your child in the next week. Remember to have a swim suit that fits, a towel, and put on sunscreen before your child comes to school. We will be having some of the same stations like: shaving cream, bubbles, water play, silly string, and others with our Circle of Friends buddies. Parents are welcome to come.......but beware, WILL get wet. The students think it is funny to get the teacher AND parents wet!! We love this activity every year.

We also have field day next Friday on the 20th. Mr. Restuccia has already sent home letters talking about the activities and what color t-shirt each grade level will be wearing. Parents are welcome to this event too.

On Monday May 23, Flower Mound High School Band will be performing for the upper grades.

Then, Tuesday May 24th, we travel to the Texas Motor Speedway for our Speeding to Read final awards. Don't forget to wear your orange shirts.

Wednesday May 25th, we head off to CAC for a swim party with Ms. Lindsey and her classes from other schools. We will have the whole outdoor pool to ourselves. We will be eating lunch there as well.

Friday of that same week, Saaketh will be going with fifth grade on a field trip to the Civil War museum.

May 30th- NO SCHOOL Memorial Day

May 31st- Third Grade Market Day! Save those coins for shopping. Fifth graders will be going back to the CAC for the end-year class party. Mrs. Lau and Mrs. Jones will be going again! I am sure they will have a nice tan after all those trips to the pool!

June 1st are the end of the year class parties for the other grade levels. See flyer attached for times.

June 2nd- Fifth grade award ceremony and early release!

June 4th- Party at Mrs. Paterson's from 2-4.

I think that is enough excitement for one month!!!!

Congratulations to our own Mrs. Lindsey DuBose on winning the Model Character Award at the LISD banquet last week. She is the best and so deserving of this award. Our school is so lucky to have such a wonderful dedicated teacher. Way to go Ms. Lindsey!
