High Point Trip Info

June 6 - 2:57PM

Good afternoon parents,

Please find the attached form for our last day of school High Point beach day. Please realize that we have NO staffing at the school on this, our last day of school. We hope you can all join us! We love to have a comfortable visit with everyone on the last day - it has been a tradition here at Fields of Green for many years.

You can email me your responses, and if your child (Sprouts and older students only) needs a ride to the park, I will pair your child up with a parent who is willing to drive from the school. You can then make an agreement to arrange pick up of your child at the end of the day with your child's chaperone. We truly appreciate each and every parent who offers to help chaperone kids who would otherwise not be able to go if their parent has to work.

Thanks! Miss Deb

Science Projects and Biking

June 2 - 12:28PM

Hello Elementary/Middle Parents,

Make sure that your child brings in his/her experiment tomorrow already completed! If the results end up being something that isn't able to be left here or shown, maybe send in some of the materials and also pictures of your child doing the experiment with pics of the results. Please don't email them and ask me to print them out. They have been working on their display boards but we need something physical to go in front of them.

Biking on Monday will take place at 9:30 am. We load up bikes first and then drive to Maple Grange. Aaron has a nice morning planned there for the kids! If you can drive, you can arrive at school late with your child if you want. I won't consider you late on that day if you are driving.

Thanks!

Art Show Information

June 1 - 2:17PM

Good afternoon all,

I just heard from Miss Corrie, the Art teacher who is setting up the Art Show for the kids at Open House. She informed me that she will be displaying work from ALL of the students from Seedlings on up, so come and enjoy your child's work in the show on Sunday!

Science Fair Projects

June 1 - 2:17PM

Good afternoon Elementary/Middle parents,

In all of this information I've been trying to keep straight I keep forgetting to write to my own class about our Science Fair projects this year. The kids were supposed to take their projects home last Friday to begin at home over the weekend, and since I was in the garden trying to finish up their plantings, most of them forgot to take them.

We only have a couple of days left before Open House, but I am planning on having their projects out and displayed on Sunday. I told the kids that they must conduct the experiments at home (it's a GROSS Science Fair this year! Only a couple of kids refuse to get gross.) and I will take care of their displays at school.

Most experiments we chose together are easy and quick due to the lack of time, so please help your child to finish their experiments and then bring EVERYTHING in from your experiment on Friday.

Thanks, and hold onto your hats because time is passing us by so quickly it feels like a windstorm!

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, and as one mom wrote to me,

We will join you in remembering those we lost and those who were left behind. I wish more people would do that in between burgers and beers. It's a sad state of affairs, this war business, but it will apparently go on and on and precious souls will continue to be lost, UNLESS.....

I couldn't have said it any better myself,

-Miss Deb
