Weekly News: May 19-23

News:

Can you believe that we only have three more full weeks left of kindergarten?! This year has flown by! As I think back to our very first few weeks of school together, I am amazed and so proud of how each and every student has grown and at how we have grown as a class. I am looking forward to having a fun-filled last few weeks together.

NO SCHOOL next Monday, May 26th due to the Memorial Day Holiday. Enjoy the time off with your families. 

Your community service projects have been fantastic! I have enjoyed watching your presentations on how you have been serving your community these past few months. It makes me so happy to see a class full of leaders!

Our very last book order is due this week. If you would like to order books for summer, now is the perfect time. Thank you so much for all of your orders all year long. By ordering online, you have helped build up our classroom library!

We let our butterflies go free into the world on Friday. It was quite an exciting event! 

The last day for electives is Friday, May 30.


End of the Year Events:  
The end of the year is coming quick and I wanted to let you know {IN ADVANCE!} what we have planned! Make sure to SAVE THE DATES!

Friday, June 6th: Donuts with Dads. Dads, if you are able, please plan on joining us at 8:10 on this date for a quick donut with your child and a presentation of a special Father's Day gift for you! This will be no longer than 30 minutes. If you are not able to attend, we would love to have grandpa, uncle, or another special "dad"!

We will have fun reading our favorite library books and playing our favorite games all day! We will also celebrate summer birthdays on this day. If you were unable to celebrate your child's birthday this year because it is in the summer, please let me know and we can plan a celebration together!

We will rotate through fun centers outside and we will also have a special assembly to attend. If you are able to help out, please see our room-mom, Teresa. You will also want to wear a lot of sunscreen and clothes that you can get wet!! Thank you so much for your support!
