Field Day Pizza – Important

The office needs to know, by tomorrow June 6th, what each student is doing for lunch on Friday. Right now I have 12 students who have brought in the form and $3.00 for lunch.

Please let me know tomorrow what your  child will do on Friday.


If you didn’t get the pink form, just write you name on a paper and send that in with the $3. They will get cheese pizza, chips and water.


Field Day – June 9th

The first graders will be participating In the morning, from 9 – noon. I need 5 helpers for my class. Please let me know if you can help out.

Field Day is a time for the children to be outside, doing physical activities. There will be different stations set up and the class will rotate from station to station.

Dressing in layers is important because it usually starts off a bit cool, but by noon it is usually hot out. Also, you might want to spray bug spray and put sun screen on so your child doesn’t get bit by mosquitoes or sun burnt.

We end our time with a pizza lunch!

What terrific parents and students I have! Thank you for the notes/cards, snacks, flowers, school supplies and treats. I have a beautiful bouquet of flowers on my dining room table, and lots of good food to nibble on while I read the wonderful notes people wrote.
