A Note from Miss Geene

Another busy week in Sixth grade! First, fourth quarter progress reports go home in the Tuesday folder. Please make sure to go over this with your child and continue to encourage them to keep working hard and doing their best until graduation. This week we also have the May Crowning on Tuesday at 8:30am. If you are saying a prayer with your child, please arrive at 8:15am to be prepared to walk over with the class. The students will also need to bring flowers for May as well. 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 Milton Cuapio and Kaelyn Phillips 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!
