Care to the Core Event

We went outside and worked hard to beautify Miller school during our Care to the Core Event.  First we walked around the building and picked up garbage.  Then we each go a chance to spread grass seed to help fill in our playground and surrounding areas where the grass has died.

Mr. Wallaby showed the class how to spread grass seed.

 

When we finished working outside we went into school and continued our work for Earth Day!  We wrote an Earth day promise to help keep our world clean.

Concert permission slip

­­­

Yesterday your child brought home a permission slip for our concert on Tuesday, April 17.  Please make sure you fill it out and return it to school with your child as soon as possible.  If I do not have a slip allowing them to stay your child will not be able to stay after school on this day.

Thank you for your help.  The kids have worked very hard on their songs so I hope everyone will be able to attend.  I’m sure you will enjoy the performance.

Here is a copy of the permission slip that went home.

Greetings Kindergarten/1st Grade Parents,

 

We would like to remind you of the concert your student has been preparing for, on Tuesday, April 17th, 4pm. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the talent and hard work that your students put in every day in music class. Reminder, your child has been asked to wear their Miller shirt, with black pants/skirt. This will ensure a uniform look, as a video will be made of the concert that will later be available on my blog. Because of this, you will not need to worry about recording the event yourself.

To ensure the safety of all students, we are asking that you fill out the areas below and have this form returned to us by the day of the concert. The school needs to be aware of who is staying after school with us, as they MUST have a planned ride home after the concert (which should be no more than an hour long).

If you have any questions, please contact Miss Doan at doant@dearbornschools.org

 

____  Yes, my student will attend the concert. Someone will be attending, and will take them home after.

 

____  No, my student will not be attending. They should go home right after school as usual.
