May 11:  Field Trip to Science City  

 

At this time I have 13 parents signed up to chaperone the field trip.  If Science City does not have a limit on the number of chaperones, then everyone will be able to attend.  However, if there is a limit, we will need to draw names to be fair. I will let everyone know in the next few days.  Thanks!!

 

Our reading war ends Friday-May 4th!!

Please encourage your child to read every night!  

Right now we are in the lead!!  

 

As the weather gets warmer, please help us out…

Shorts need to be finger-tip length, tank top straps should be 2-3 fingers wide (no spaghetti straps) with no undergarments showing, and muscle shirts should not allow us to see the sides of the body/ribs.    Thanks for helping us avoid any further distractions! :)

As these guys are growing up, they are getting a more grown up “aroma”, especially on PE days and warm weather recess days.  Deodorant is appreciated, when needed. Thanks!
