Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms! I hope that your family took some time to celebrate YOU!

Tuesday Home Lunch

On Tuesday, we will be visiting the junior high schools. We will need to eat in our classroom before we leave, so please have your child bring a home lunch.

Field Day

A reminder that this Friday is our 5th Grade Field Day from 1:30-3:00. At the end, please make sure to sign your child out with me before you take them home. Hopefully we'll have a beautiful day!


Last week the 5th grade team sent home 2 envelopes. The red envelope had your invitation to the 5th Grade Send Off and the manila envelope had "My Wish" which was a card for you to fill out and send back to school by May 18th. THANK YOU to those of you who have already sent your cards back!
