Weekly News: May 18-22

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 25th due to the Memorial Day Holiday. Enjoy the time off with your families. 

Your community service projects came home on Friday. They were all 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 butterflies are still in their chrysalises. We are getting very anxious to see them come out!

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!
