Each student must bring a sack lunch, 2 BOTTLED drinks, and a towel.  (Sack lunches & milk will be available from the cafeteria, if needed.)  They may also each bring ONE item to play with at the park (no bats), but keeping up with the item is the child’s responsibility.  Please make sure your child’s name is on EVERYTHING!  Parents are welcome to join us!  Students will be allowed to leave the park with parents if they are checked out with the teacher.

Tuesday, May 8:  Class Pictures- The pictures are taken in the morning, so don’t be late!

Wednesday, May 9:  Field Day (8:20-11:45)

Students need to wear old clothes & athletic shoes (NO FLIP FLOPS OR SANDALS), and bring a water bottle & towel.  Parents are encouraged to come watch the fun!  When the fun is over, the students will be allowed to leave with parents as long as the student has been checked out with the teacher.  If your student will be staying the entire day, he/she may want to bring a change of clothes–sometimes they end up quite wet!  :)

Take Our Poll!

Our class is doing a project on how to prevent catching a cold during the winter season. We will be working together in groups and making a public service announcement, an online pamphlet, putting posters around the school, and creating a jingle. Stay tuned for what we come up with to keep YOU healthy. Help start us out by taking our poll!

Calling All Retired Shoes!

We are teaming up with Nike Reuse-A-Shoe for a shoe drive. We need YOUR help! Bring as many worn out shoes as possible and toss them in our class’s bin so Nike-Reuse-A-Shoe can recycle them into new places to play!

Before you bring your kicks to school, please remember:

  • Athletic shoes only
  • Any brand is OK
  • No damp or muddy shoes
  • No metal cleats or dress shoes
  • No sandals or flip-flops

We will be accepting shoes until February 29. The class that brings the most pairs of shoes will be rewarded with a pizza party so let’s clean out those closets for a good cause!
