Dear Families,

I hope everyone had a restful break.  We have a busy week ahead of us.  This Friday is a full day with a 2:45 dismissal.

The Speech Contest will take place in May.  By the week of May 5th, students are to commit to memory a published poem selection with a minimum of 25 lines. There are no props for the 5th grade.

Thank you to the families who have donated boxes of tissues. I am continuing to ask  each student to donate one box of tissues  to the classroom this week.

We have almost reached our goal of $80.00 for Blessings in a Backpack.  I encourage students to continue to bring in change.  Below is an overview of our week.
