  • 5/22 Early Release- NO BOOKBAGS ALLOWED
  • 5/23 Early Release- NO BOOKBAGS ALLOWED

Remember: Report cards will be mailed over the summer. If you didn’t place 3 stamps on the envelope, you’ll have to come up to the school during office hours to pick it up during the break.

I’ve enjoyed working with you and your child this school year. Please be sure that your child READS this summer. Reading will help them to not fall further behind if they are not already reading on grade level. If your child is reading on grade level, this will help them to stay on track and be prepared when school begins.

If your child participated in the Six Flags Reading Program, they have their free ticket. It was given last week Tuesday and they took it home in their homework folder.

Have an AWESOME summer break!!!
