This will be the last newsletter and progress report that will be sent home this year.  SAGE testing is over, thankfully, so we can focus on some last minute math concepts students need to know before they enter 6th grade; and of course, we’ll do some really fun activities!  Please look at the list of events and note the changes we have made.

     *Note the change in dates of these events.
          For Tent Day students need to be able to set up and take down their own tents, unless you want to come and help them. Tents may be set up before 8:50 or at 10:30. Students should bring activities and games for the day. There is no Wi-Fi. Most students indicated they would be bringing a home lunch, so don't forget that. Those who ordered a school lunch will be going into the building to eat. We will take the tents down at about 3:10.
We would like students to bring a t-shirt (white or light colored, used or new) by May 15th, that can be tie-dyed for our Art Looks Good on Me activity with Mrs. Davis.
Please look for any library books or other school books that need to be returned to school. Students will also need to turn in their recorders. Students will need to return or pay for these items in order to receive their yearbooks and promotion cards.
Parents, we know this looks like a lot-and we agree, so please email us with your concerns or questions.  We talk about these activities in class,, but we know that sometimes info doesn’t make it home the way we explained it.  

This has been an amazing year, and it will be hard to say goodbye to these students. You have been supportive parents, and we can’t ask for more than that.  
Thank you for sharing your children with us this school year!
