A Note from Miss Geene
Welcome to another week in Sixth Grade! Can you believe it is almost time for Graduation! I feel like it was only yesterday I was seeing their bright smiling faces enter my class in August. I can’t thank each of you enough for sharing your child with me this year and for supporting our class this year. However, it is not the end of the year yet. We still have a whole week of learning left and on Friday we have Field Day. Please encourage your student to continue to stay focused and to continue to work hard until the last day. Thank you again for all your support throughout the year.
Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. Snack Shack has been going well and the students are having a great time selling the snacks and seeing the results of their hard work on the financial report! This week Carter Schrenker and Annelisa Fitz will be Snack Shack managers. Snack Shack will be on Thursday this week. Parents we are running low on snacks so please help us purchase more. However, do not spend more than $10-$15 on snacks. Thank you for supporting the sixth grade in their business endeavor.
Below is a list of the students who are on Honor Guard this week. If your student is participating, they must stay until the end. Please do not pick them up during car line unless I have been given a note. Thank you for your support!
