Wow! It’s hard to believe that it is already May. What a wonderful experience it has been with this lively group of fifth graders! We most certainly wish the best for them next year.

Our Lake Powell trip is coming up. The buses will be leaving the school promptly at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 9. All students and chaperones need to be at the school by 6:00 a.m. Students and chaperones must bring a disposable sack lunch with them as we will be eating lunch in a park this day. Remember, students are not allowed to bring cell phones or any device that can connect to WiFi. If they bring DVDs or games, they must be G or P.G. or rated E for everyone. We are also in need of food and water donations for this two day trip. Please check our sign-up genius. We appreciate any items you can provide from the list.

Thursday, May 23, each child needs to bring in a large, sturdy bag of some sort to hold all items from his or her desk and from homeroom that day.

Thursday, May 23, we will be taking the fifth graders on an afternoon walk to Sonic. Students will have already eaten lunch, so this is a time for getting a tasty treat for them to enjoy. Students do not need to bring in money this day but do need to wear comfortable walking shoes. Any parents are welcomed to join us. We will be leaving the campus around 12:30 p.m. and returning about 2:00 p.m.

The last day of school will be Friday, May 24, and this will be an early release day for the students. This will be a school wide Water Day. Thus, all kids will need to wear their bathing suits, bring a towel, wear tennis shoes or water shoes, and be prepared with plenty of sunscreen.

Let us state one more time how grateful we teachers are for all the hard work and effort both our students and parents have demonstrated over the last nine months. Hopefully many fond memories were made for this wonderful group of kids!
