May 2019

This last month has been productive in our class as the children completed their model animals and dioramas and learned more about mindful gratitude and optimism. It was fun to see their creativity and imagination as they each put their own personal design into their animals and dioramas, using the knowledge they had gained from their personal research.

We only have a few more weeks of school and we are excited about our upcoming classroom events in May.

Mr Tyler and the children have been working very hard on a musical program that they are going to present to you on May 17th. The program will be at 11:00 am on the stage in the main building. Families are invited to attend.

May 17 will be our last class day and a family hike. You are all invited to join us as we hike the South Valley trail. We will leave the school following the musical program at around noon to head to the trailhead. After the hike, we will gather at the pavilion there to eat our picnic lunches. Children will be dismissed to their parents, at the trailhead, after lunch. The children will be transported to the hike by parents. If you cannot join us and need your child to ride with another parent, please let us know. Information and permission slips will come home in your child’s purple folder this week.

Thank you for sharing your children with us this year! It’s been an honor to teach them and learn from them.

Important Reminders to Ensure a Successful Friday

for your Child:

Before School: Please apply sunscreen if you would like your child to wear it and eat a good breakfast. We do not have snack until 9:40 in the morning.

Drop off: Please pull up into the round-about and let your child(ren) out. If you would like to walk them in, please park in the parent lot to the west of the round-about. The door to the classroom will open at 8:25. If you arrive before that, please be prepared to wait with your child.

Every day the students need to bring:

          • Hearty snack
          • Lunch
          • Water bottle
          • Backpack
          • Appropriate shoes for P.E.
          • Appropriate outdoor clothing

Dismissal: Please pull up into the round-about and wait. We will walk your child(ren) to your car. This ensures that we know they were delivered to you safely. Thank you for your cooperation. If you are late, we will return to the classroom with your child(ren), and you may pick them up there.

*On Pizza Days, please send your child(ren) in with $1/slice of pizza. Slices are "double cut". We are able to order gluten free pizza.
