Spirit Week & Other Reminders

We have our annual End of the Year Spirit Week coming up! Check out the flyer coming home this week that tells the details on these special days so you can plan your wardrobes ahead! PS Kindergarten/TK is starting Spirit Week one day early on June 6th with a Western Day! Then we’ll join the school in the remainder of Spirit Week!

206 Father’s Day Celebration

Our classroom Father’s Day celebration will be on Thursday, June 7th from 9:00-9:30 am (approximately). We are hoping all you daddies out there can make it! A sign up list will be at the board by the backpacks soon for all dads to sign up!

Last Homework Logs

Our last Homework Logs will be turned in this week on Friday, June 1st. After this date, they will be returned but not counted. We’ll try to send a new log home with everyone at the start of the week in case you need one last log for the week. Thank you!

Help Needed

Our last day of school we will be having Costco Pizza and a few other snacks for a special lunch. We will need someone to order and pick up the pizza for us if possible. If you think you’d be able to help us, please send me an email and we’ll work out all the details! Thank you in advance!

Jump for Heart

Field Trip

As many of you saw in folders, the date of our last field trip has changed from Tuesday, June 12th to Friday, June 8th. A new permission slip went home on Friday. If you had planned on joining us for the special date and are now not able to come, please drop by as soon as possible to let us know.

LAST Scholastic Book Order

Our last book order for the year went home this past week. Check out any deals you may want to order for summer. There are $1 book deals and some favorite to engage your child to read through the summer.

Lock Down Drill

If you were at drop off on Friday morning, you got to experience our Lock Down Drill. Ms. Sloan wanted to make sure that we all got a practice of what to do when being caught off guard. The families and students did awesome! Thank you for being so prompt in coming in. The kids are getting better at it as we all know we need to lock doors, close the blinds, turn off the lights and stay in a quiet huddle. We have also discussed how this might play out differently if you are coming in late, or in transition to another class/room on campus! I’m truly impressed with the understanding and confidence these guys have!

Last Day Lunch

Our last day of school we will be having pizza from Costco for our snack/lunch. If for any reason you do not want your child to take part in this lunch or wish them to bring a lunch, please contact me ASAP. We will be eating inside that day due to 5th Grade Promotion. If you wish to buy from the cafeteria as an alternative to Pizza the only menu options are listed below:

  • Turkey/Swiss sandwich or Sunbutter and jelly sandwich
  • fresh fruit
  • baby carrots and ranch
  • white or chocolate milk

 

Volunteer Tea

We have so many volunteers! Invites were sent home. Please return ASAP if you plan on attending. This is a special time you can come to be thanked and appreciated for all you do for our students and school as whole! There will be some light snack/desserts and drinks. The choir will likely perform with a few songs to enjoy! I will be dropping by during the student’s recess to say hello and grab a couple pictures. We hope you can all make it!

In This Week’s Post:  Thank You, Open House, Library Week Postponed, Western BBQ, Mother’s Day, April Character Education, Art, Star of the Week, Upcoming Events, The Week Ahead

Thank You!

Thank you so much for the lovely week of being loved as your teachers! We both feel so appreciated and special for the kindness and generosity you shared with us this week! We appreciate the book from the students, the beautifully filled canvas totes, the door decor, the flowers, and all the cards, gifts and hugs all week long! Thank you!

Open House

Library Week Postponed

Due to the mini-book fair next week, our library time has been postponed until the following week. You are able to keep your books until May 16th or feel free to turn them in early. I will send out a reminder on Facebook the night before to remind you to return them on the 16th.

Heart Assembly

This past Tuesday, you received a flyer in your child’s folder. We went to an assembly the same day to teach us about Healthy Hearts. Check out the flyer. If you register (online, the app, or flyer) your child can get a free bracelet. This is all to support healthy hearts and living healthy lives.

On May 25th our class/school will be having a jump-a-thon!

Western BBQ

What a great day we had at the Western BBQ! Thank you for all who made it out! The kids expressed at attendance that morning how special it was to have you all come and sit with them at lunch!

Mother’s Day in 206

Our aim is to make our mamas know how special they are to us! We invited all mamas in to be loved on! What a great time we had! The video of the students singing “You’ve Got a Friend in Me!” is posted on our Facebook page! We also watched a great story about a mixed-up Mother’s Day! Then we made a keepsake craft for each mama to take home! In the end we finished our morning with some snacks and fancy drinks for our moms! Thank you all for coming! May you have the best Mother’s Day this year!

May Character Education – Cooperation

Kathleen Nguyen came in to talk about our May Character Education trait of Cooperation. She explained the meaning of the trait and had a discussion with the students to check for understanding. They have a little more background and understanding for this concept as many of them have played on a team or even worked together with a friend or sibling to share or create something. Kathleen had each of them make a piece of a quilt (paper) and we put it together to make a  class Cooperation Quilt!
