Good morning all,
This time of year it seems like time is passing by at lightning speed and we all can't seem to catch it and slow it down!
I decided to let the Bake Sale drop this week since it was such an intense last week with the play and I didn't want to ask more of parents this week besides Parent Conferences. I hope you all enjoyed speaking with the teachers in conferences and that you are satisfied with the job we have all done with your children this year. We are so thankful for our wonderful parents and awesome kids!
Below you will find some explanations and updates about what is coming until school is out for the summer:
Open House - Our 20th!! It is next Saturday from 11 to 3 - you should all have received the invitations by now in your folders. This day is a fun day for our current families and any new families that would like to spend some time with us. Spread the word and bring as many people as you wish! We always have a fun day - We ask that everyone contribute a little food so we have a great old-fashioned family barbecue, along with a bouncy house, goat walking, games for kids, maple syrup cotton candy, a popcorn machine to snack from all day, classroom tours and displays, music for kids with Miss Nicole from Music Together, and lots of other fun things to do! We will also have a special 8th grade graduation for our two graduates this year at 1 PM. There will be a sign up sheet for food items on the gate by the playground and also one in the Seedlings classroom for you all to fill in.
Don't forget that next Friday is a half day so we can set up for Saturday! Dismissal at 11:30.
Also don't forget that we are closed this Monday in observance of Memorial Day.
FUN WEEK is what we call the final week of school. I have taken a look at the extended forecast so I am scheduling the following (hopefully Mother Nature will cooperate!):
Monday, June 5th - Water Fun Day - All kids will bring bathing suits, sunscreen, towels, change of clothes and water shoes. We will play with water in the playground and the Elementary/Middle kids will also be doing a biological assessment of our stream - finding macro-invertebrates among the rocks, which they love to do!
Tuesday, June 6th - Field Day - The kids participate in fun outdoor games. All kids must wear sneakers - no open toed shoes or sandals that day please!
Wednesday, June 7th - Our annual trip to High Point State Park for all families. We meet there at 10 am and let our kids have fun at the beach together for the day. More information will be sent home about this event.
Thursday, June 8th - Movie Day - The kids pretend they are in a theater and get to chomp on popcorn and drinks while they watch a film together.
Friday, June 9th - Last Day of School / Half Day - Dismissal at 11:30 - Ice Cream Sundae Day - All kids get to build their own sundaes! For any kids with allergies, please send in items for them to eat so they don't feel left out. We also appreciate any donations of ice cream or toppings!
Last but not least - Don't forget to sign up for our Sunflower Camp that begins on June 19th!! Miss Lisa and Miss Melissa will be teaching the kids all kinds of fun lessons and outdoor activities!
Have a lovely day, Miss Deb
