Where learning happens

Theme Week


Dear Parents,

Next week is Theme Week.

Monday – Beach Day

Tuesday – Camping Day

Wednesday – Carnival

Thursday – Hollywood Day

Remember to only send items that will fit in your child’s backpack.

Also, today I am sending home the list of items needed to the Eagle Scout Service Project: “You Are Not Forgotten.”  We completed our letters today and turned them into to Learning Commons. So far we have had two donations for our troops! Each and every little item would be appreciated.

If you have any questions about next week, please feel free to send me an email.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

End of the Year Information


Important Info

The end of the year is a crazy time! There is so much to get done and so much fun to be had. Today I am sending home a note about THEME DAYS! Theme days will take place the week of May14th. Please keep this sheet and refer to it that week for items your child can bring to school. The students will love this week…I promise.

You will also see information about our END OF THE YEAR PARTY/FUNNY MONEY REWARDS!! See details below. Please help out if you can!

I am in need of a disco ball and fog machine to use in my classroom for this week. I know these items sound crazy, but it will be fabulous.


Dear Parents,

The end of the year is approaching and we are gearing up for our End of the Year Party!  This year, we will have a Carnival theme.  We hope to see you there!  Please read the details below carefully.

Class Party – 10:30 – 11:30a.m. On the bus parking lot.  All parents are welcome to come!

Funny Money Reward Carnival – 12:45-1:45 in classrooms.   Students have been working hard all year to earn funny money for good behavior!  Students will get the opportunity to spend their money on a variety of different carnival themed experiences, including:

*a photo booth

*a cupcake walk

*a “sock hop” dance party

*a hula hoop extravaganza

*a movie and popcorn

Students will choose which experience they will want to spend their money on, and some may choose to do more than one activity!  We will also have a discount store with all items that are leftover from past funny money shopping days, where students can use their money to buy items.

Please look out for communication from your room moms about how you can help us with these awesome events! The students have worked so hard this year and we look forward to giving them an awesome day!

**Sports-a-thon – Wednesday, April 25thWe will have water stations, so your child will need to bring in an extra outfit to put on after we come back inside. Please check the weather forecast that day and make sure your child has the appropriate clothing.

**Book Orders – Due Wednesday, April 25thI sent home one final book order on Wednesday. I sent this particular one home because it had higher level books included. I thought maybe you might want to stock up for summer.

Hawaiian Luau


We earned 20 compliments! It took awhile because we are so good! (Wink! Wink!)

Anyway, we have decided to have a Hawaiian Luau on Friday afternoon to celebrate this awesome accomplishment. Please have your child wear  bright colors or Hawaiian shirts if you have them. If you have any other fitting accessories (leis, sunglasses, straw skirts, etc) feel free to send them in with your child. The kids can bring a beach towel. I will be providing Hawaiian Punch and another special snack. We will also be doing the LIMBO. If you would like to provide something special for our luau, please let me know!! The kids have really earned this one!!
