A Note from Miss Geene
I can not believe we are in May already! It seems like only yesterday I saw each student’s bright face on the first day of school. With only one month left, please keep in mind this month is going to be our busiest yet. Let’s continue to work together to make the end of the year great!
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 Morgan Read and Millie Dennis will be Snack Shack managers. 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!
