WOW! Here we are...

Wow! Here we are guys, and it's already the end. It has been a great year! Thank you for offering support and encouragement to our classroom. This time of year is always bitter-sweet. We're sad to see the end of our school year and the end of elementary school, and on the other hand it is so exciting all of the amazing things that await these kids. I love hearing from former students and families (especially when big things happen), so please keep me in the loop. Have a fantastic summer!

Best Wishes and Warm Regards,

Janelle Nordtvedt

5th Grade Send Off

Our 5th Grade Send Off is on Tuesday at 2:30pm. Hope to see you there!

Some Basic Information:

All of the students, staff, and parents will line the hallways to cheer on the 5th graders as they walk through the school. The 5th graders will end their walk back in the 5th grade cluster (Shiner) for juice and cookies. Then, we usually let the students sign each other's t-shirts (students should wear their red Eagle Creek shirt) and/or memory books/yearbooks. Parents may then check your child out for the rest of the day, if you would like. It's a very simple celebration, but a lot of fun for the kids to see all of the people that believe in their success!
