Welcome to Fourth Grade!!

Picking Up Your Box

If you haven't marked your calendars, please plan on stopping by the school during the week of May 26th-29th (Thursday: 4th and 5th Grade Pick-Up) for student materials pick-up. Our hallways are filled with almost 500 boxes, each one filled with everything from desk and locker items, personal items left in the classroom, art work from throughout the year, award certificates, recorders, summer activity books, and (hopefully) yearbooks.

During the same time, we would also ask that you return:

  • Checked out technology
  • Library books
  • Class readers
  • Borrowed PE equipment
  • Kindergarten Caps and Gowns

Someone will be at the school from 7:30am-3:30pm each day; feel free to pick just one of the assigned days to come if you have multiple children.

Have a wonderful summer, we will miss you all!
