Next Week’s News! 5/29/2017

Happy Memorial Day! I hope you all have enjoyed this long (mostly dry) weekend.

We are heading into the final days of school. Please read carefully.
This week we will begin wrapping up our school year. Each day you will probably find lots of wonderful work in your child’s cubby. It may be easier for all if you send in a paper bag with handles to carry this very important work.
Field Day is Wednesday! Please make sure your child arrives ready to spend the morning outside, sneakers, sunscreen, weather appropriate clothing and a water bottle. ALL students are invited to participate in Field Day. If your child does not usually attend school on Wednesdays, please send them in for the morning so they don’t miss this wonderful day.
Calling all hams! Does your child sing, dance, have a particular talent that they’d like to share? Sign them up for the LS Talent Share taking place on Wednesday morning, June 7th. Deadline for registration is this coming Friday, June 2nd. Contact Ms. Emily:
We are planning a “beach party” for PreK and K students for next week. Watch for more information!
Wednesday the 7th is our last full day of school. Thursday, June 8th, is Moving Up Day for 5th and 8th grade students. Your child is certainly invited to attend if you prefer. Please keep in mind that it is a dress-up day where we will be seated for the entire ceremony (approximately 2 hours). Dismissal is immediately following the ceremony.
There may be several reminders that come along in the next few days. I will also post them in my Dinner-X-Change.
Have you registered for SEA? Summer Enrichment Academy is a wonderful way to keep your child engaged and connected to RHS this summer!

Hi all,

Well, the chicks are happily back at the farm and we survived the very chilly damp day. We have enjoyed learning about dinosaurs and will finish that up next week. We will also start our new unit on bugs and plants. Some of the books we’ll be reading will be:
“Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt” Kate Messner and Christopher Silas Neal
“Pond Walk” by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace
“Over in the Meadow” by Ezra Jack Keats
“All About Seeds” by Susan Kuchalla and Jane McBee
A HUGE thank you to all who helped make Teacher Appreciation Day so wonderful! We are so lucky to have you!
Scholastic book orders are due on May 10th. This is the last book order of the school year, so don’t miss out! If you prefer to order online, that’s great. Just remember to use our classroom code, KP44F.
The Garden Night sign up sheet is on the parent board. Please  sign up to help with dinner. We are also looking for some plants for the garden and for the pots on the fence (full sun annuals). We have had one parent volunteer to help get the garden ready to plant. Do we have any other takers? Garden night is Tuesday, May 16th at 5:30. We promise to have you out by 7:00! You’ll need your hand tools and gloves. Don’t forget your camera!
Take a look at our class quilt hanging on our classroom. This quilt will go home with one lucky family on Garden Night. Chances are $1 and you may purchase as many as you’d like. The proceeds buy supplies for next year’s quilt!
Don’t forget to check out our class blog! We update it regularly.
