Hello families,

It's hard to believe we just have a mere four days left together! Please remember our special dismissal times next week... Monday/Tuesday 1:25Wednesday 11:50 or 12:30 (as usual), Thursday 12:00.

On Tuesday, we will be leaving for Saratoga Springs around 9:00. Thank you to out many chaperons! You can meet us in our classroom by 8:45. There may not be room for all parents on the bus. If this happens, Mrs. Tibiyan is driving and you can carpool with her our each other. 

Students should bring: bathing suit, towel, sunscreen, water, change of clothes (don't forget undergarments...), water bottle, sandals, hat/sunglasses, and a backpack or small bag to put everything inside! Students can also bring a disposable camera if they'd like to document their last 5th grade trip with friends. Students and chaperones will be served a BBQ lunch and popsicle! We will return to school just in time for 1:25 dismissal.

On Thursday, we will be having our brunch at 10:15 (right after snack recess). If you volunteered to something you can sent it to school with your student or it around 9:25-9:30 to our classroom. If you offered to help set up, you can start going to the 5th grade classrooms around 9:25-9:30 and carry items to the picnic tables (I'll also have some students help) and start setting items up in a way that makes sense for a buffet.  We typically use the 2 picnic tables closest to the blacktop for the food items and then students use the rest of the tables to sit down and enjoy their meal. Cleaning up will start around 10:45.

Our promotion ceremony will start around 11:00. We would love/very much appreciate the brunch to be completely cleaned up before we start the ceremony. The ceremony usually lasts around 30 minutes. Afterwards, students will come back and get any belongings from the classroom, say good -bye to me, and be on their way!

Let me know if you have any questions. This has been such a wonderful year and I'm looking forward to celebrating next week!
