Symphony Field Trip Tuesday!
Fifth grade is heading the Symphony on Tuesday, February 18th! Your child will need to bring a sack lunch this day, unless you indicated that you will be purchasing a lunch on the permission slip that went home a few weeks ago. We will be eating in our classroom when we return from the symphony!
Also, please remember that this is a dress up event. Just like they would wear different clothes to play sports than what they would wear to school, we want them to understand the importance of this event and dress accordingly. Girls should wear a dress or skirt, or nice pants and a blouse. Boys should wear slacks and a nice shirt. We ask for no jeans if possible or t-shirts. We appreciate your help in making this a special event for our wonderful 5th graders.
This week we spent time horoing our friends and improving our friendship skills. We had special lessons on friendship, met with our buddies classes, had mix it up lunch, and learned about appreciating diversity.
Thank you to our wonderful PTA for providing this program.
