I am looking for donations for our science project coming up hopefully next week. We will be growing hydroponics and need 2-liter bottles. If you have any please send them to class with your students
Thursday, May 17th we will be heading to Discover World. Thank you in advance of our parent volunteers that will be chaperoning with us. We will be talking with the kids, but we are requesting no money or electronic devices to be sent along and make sure the kids come with a bag lunch in a container that can be tossed when they are done.
May 18th will be our Cousin’s/Figaros night. Please go and buy dinner or lunch to help support school. The final PTO meeting will be on May 24th at 6:30. Our Fox River visit day will be Friday, May 26th. There will be no school on May 29th because it will be Memorial Day. Finally, on May 31st we will be having an all-school ALICE evacuation drill. When I get more on this event I will pass it along.
On the last day we will be having our final auction of the year. A letter asking for donations is going home today so please look it over and see if you can help us out. If you are looking at having a garage sale, some of those items would be grand for the kids.
