Team Valentino Weekly Broadcast


important dates

May 22 ~ All library books due! Please ask your child if they have returned all books that they have checked out.

May 24 ~ Field Trip to Four Rivers Environmental Center in Channahon

We will be learning about the importance of rivers in our area, how early pioneers navigated the rivers, animals and their interdependence, appreciating nature, and art in nature. Much of what we will experience ties into our novel study of The Sign of the Beaver.

Please be sure to dress for the weather, as we will be outside most of the day. It may be muddy so old shoes would be a great idea (no flip flops or sandals!) and wear long pants. We will be eating lunch indoors.

May 28 ~ T-Shirt bleaching We have all our T-Shirts! We will be using a reverse stencil technique, spraying bleach to create a unique effect. These will be worn for our FIELD DAY and FUN RUN DAY. We would love to have 2 parents who could volunteer 45 minutes to help us with the bleaching on Tuesday the 28 from 10:30 - 11:15. Please contact me if you think this sounds fun and want to join in!

May 31 ~ FUN RUN (Sponsored by our PTO) and CLASS PICNICS

There will be no hot lunch served on picnic day. Hot dogs, chips, fruit and packaged desserts will be served. Student may choose to bring their own sack lunch if they do not want a hot dog. Each 4th grade class will be responsible for providing something for the whole grade. A note will be sent home this week with specific information about what our class needs to provide.

June 5 ~ P.E at SKATELAND More information and permission slips coming soon

June 6 ~ FIELD DAY
