    Second Grade Updates:

    *CAMP WEEK (May 21st-May 23rd) Second graders will "go to camp" in the the classroom to celebrate the end of the school year. On Monday morning you may send your child with a sleeping bag, pillow, flashlight, and one small stuffed animal. Please look over the Camp Week Sign-up link to see if there are ways in which you can donate.  It takes a lot to put on this fun event for the kids and we would appreciate any help you can provide with donating items. 

    *Summer Birthdays- Does your child have a birthday during the summer?  If so you're invited to send a treat (if you would like) on the very last day of school!

    *Last Day of School- May 24th- Student will be dismissed at 1:00 from the field.  Please feel free to join us for a Ralston family picnic starting at 12:00.  All students need a lunch from home on this day as the cafeteria will not be operating.  PLEASE CHECK IN WITH YOUR HOMEROOM TEACHER WHEN YOU ARRIVE TO THE FIELD TO SIGN YOUR CHILD OUT! :)
