Hold onto your hat! Next week is going to be a wild ride with so many events going on. PLEASE make sure you read EVERYTHING in your child’s homework folder on Monday. There are many notes and a couple of final assessments that you won’t want to miss. You do not need to return their homework folder. It is now theirs to keep.
GRADUATION PICTURE PACKETS
If you would like to view the pictures and purchase the whole packet or some of the pages you may do so in the office. The secretaries will have them available from Monday-Friday. You can pay for them with check or cash (exact amount, please). You may also pay with a card by going on line to mylifetouch.com and purchase them there. They will give you a payment code that you will need to bring to the school to show proof of purchase. Keep in mind that your child will be getting one of these pictures on their graduation diploma so there is no obligation to purchase.
These are the prices:
All 5 sheets of pictures = $35.00
Any 4 sheets of your choice = $37.00
Any 3 sheets of your choice = $31.00
Any 2 sheets of your choice = $21.00
Any 1 sheet of your choice = $11.00
RAZ KID READERS!
Once again we have 2 fabulous Raz Kid Readers
that passed off a level!
This week we had so much fun role playing community workers! We were cashiers, waiters & waitresses, chefs and patrons.
We also had some wonderful parents and Mrs. Karren’s son tell us about their professions.
Travis Karren is a Libarian. He told us all of the things a librarian does and the many things we can do at a library. Boy are they busy.
Aiden Janssen’s father is an Aero Space Engineer. He told us about how rockets are made and tested. He said we can even go watch a rocket being tested.
Skylar Hargrave’s father works for a company that helps people start their own business. Several of the children said they had ideas of different businesses they would like to start.
Thank you to all of these men for sharing your profession with us!
LIBRARY READING PARTY
Every single child in our class turned in their library books and/or paid their fines! The librarians said to tell you thank you! Because of that, all of the children got to go to the library party. There is nothing better than snuggling in a blanket with a good book while eating popcorn and grapes! Thank you librarians for a wonderful party!
TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK
We celebrated our SPECIALS TEACHERS this week. We brainstormed reasons we love our Spanish, PE, Music and Art teachers and their classes. Then we made each of them a poster.
I also appreciate how thoughtful the children and you parents were to me this week. I truly do feel appreciated and loved! The kids all brainstormed 22 reasons they appreciate me. Then Mrs. Karren typed them up and framed them for me. I will cherish that gift forever!
Mrs. Sorensen our Spanish Teacher
Mr. Pacheco our PE Teacher
Mrs. McKay our Art Teacher
Miss Fowers our Music Teacher
TUESDAY ~ MAY 15th
Community Worker DRESS-UP DAY!
On Tuesday your child is invited to come to school dressed up as their favorite community worker. These ARE NOT fantasy, make-believe characters, or super heroes.
We will be taking a picture of each of them. Please do not go out and buy a costume. Get creative, look around your house for props. (No guns or swords). Take a look at what some of the children dressed up as last year.
WEDNESDAY ~ MAY 16th
We will be walking to the park 2 blocks from school. We have earned PERFECT ATTENDANCE FREE DRESS. So on that day your child may wear FREE DRESS! We will leave the school at 1:00 and return in time for dismissal at 3:00 pm.
FRIDAY, MAY 18th
TEDDY BEAR PICNIC
Don’t forget to send your child to school on Friday with their favorite Teddy Bear and a blanket for our Teddy Bear Picnic (it will be at our school during our regular lunchtime). They can either choose to eat school lunch or bring their lunch from home.
MONDAY & TUESDAY, MAY 21st & 22nd
Please make sure you are on time for your child’s assessment. All of our assessments are back to back and we will need the full amount of time to complete their test.
· Look for this invitation in your child’s folder
· Have your child at the school by 8:30 am – come to the classroom
· The children need to wear best dress
· The children will be wearing a graduation cap – girls, no “poofy” hairdos
· If your child has a speaking part please practice it throughout the week
(these will be sent home on Monday via email)
Last but certainly not least…
I will continue to keep your child’s name on his/her Raz Kids until the first of August. That means you will have access to reading and continuing to advance levels all summer long. I however, will not be monitoring the program or giving out stars. I encourage you to take advantage of it and read all summer. Happy reading!
This will be my last blog post for the year. I just want to let you know how much I have enjoyed being your child’s teacher! It has been a truly fabulous year and I will truly miss each and every one of them! They have all grown in spectacular ways. I am so proud of everyone! Thank you for all of your support and sharing your children with me! Have a great summer!
