May is an exciting time of year. In the classroom our students are finishing up projects and we are seeing examples of their growth and learning during the year. During the day and evenings there are culminating performances that celebrate hard work by both students and staff. It is a busy time too because as we close out this school year, the staff and I are busy making plans for the 2015-16 school year. Here are a few things I want to highlight as we head into May and the final nineteen days of school.
Pebble Pebble and End of Year Picnic: May 9th, 11:30 am – 2:30 pm
This is one of the biggest events of the spring. Come and run in our annual Pebble Pebble course with your family around the school grounds. After the races stick around and have a picnic on the grounds with family and friends.
Final PTO Meeting: May 11th, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
We have had another fantastic year and it is due in large part to the PTO working behind the scenes and supporting important initiatives through fundraising. This final meeting would be a great way to hear about this year and needs we still have to fill for the coming year.
Choir Concert: May 19th, 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Please come and join us for a great evening of music performed by our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade choir. This concert is always a highlight of the spring and there is always audience participation.
Fun and Fitness Day: May 22nd, all day
On this day all the students spend half the day outside and in the gym doing fun activities around fitness. Third, fourth and fifth participate in the morning with parents running the stations, and in the afternoon kindergarten, first and second participate with fifth grade students running the stations.
Lost and Found
Our lost and found is growing! We collect everything from shoes to water bottles to books to jackets and clothes every day. Please come and take a look in the hallway by the Art room across from the cafeteria. We will be sending all the lost and found items to the goodwill right after school lets out at the end of the month.
