Welcome back! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! It was definitely a great week to get outside and soak up some sun. My family and finally started our first raised garden. Hopefully we will seem some plants growing in the next couple of weeks or so. We planted bell peppers, banana peppers, carrots, onions, corn, green beans, peas tomatoes, and cabbage…yum!
Don’t forget to come join us this week to celebrate moms during our muffins with moms on Wednesday and Thursday.
We will be having a BOOK SWAP in the Learning Commons next week. The goal is to put a couple of “new” books in your hands to read over the summer. If you would like to participate, please bring in 1 or 2 gently used books one day next week. These should be books that you’ve already read and that you think another student would like to read. You will receive a coupon in exchange for the book you bring in. If you bring in a nonfiction book you’ll receive a nonfiction coupon, if you bring in a chapter book you’ll receive a chapter book coupon and so on.
Then, the following week students will be able to go shopping for a “new” book with their coupons!
Mrs. Allen could use parent volunteers to help with the swap. Please click the link below to sign up. Thank you!
The COW DROP will be taking place on Tuesday, May 15th. You can purchase cows for $5 each from now until May 11th. The grand prize is free Chick-fil-A for a year! The top two classes that sell the most cows will get to see their teacher go up in the helicopter to drop the cows! How exciting!
FIELD DAY for 3rd grade is next Wednesday, May 16th. Here are some important things to take note of:
Wear a shirt the same color as your assigned team (see below)
Wear gym shoes
Bring your lunch from home if you didn’t sign up to purchase one from the school
Bring at least one water bottle labeled with your name
Hats and sunglasses are permitted, however, you’re responsible for keeping up with them
Apply sunscreen before coming to school (I am not allowed to apply it)
You WILL be getting WET so I suggest to bring a towel and change of clothes
Have fun and be a good sport 🙂
** Parents – If you would like to volunteer to walk around with us and help me with crowd control that day, please let me know. You can volunteer for a full day, half day, or pop in when it’s convenient for you!
