Happy last week of school!  I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by.  We have accomplished so much this year, and I am very proud of these kids.  This week we will do our final test, the IReady diagnostic, which we will start on Monday and continue on Tuesday if needed.  Monday we will also be sending our top 25 third graders to Salina to compete in a multiplication challenge.  If your child is one of them, please make sure to sign the permission slip and return to school tomorrow.  In the afternoon we will have our multiplication celebration for anyone that passed their timed tests up to 10.  We will have an ice cream sundae party.   Tuesday Gleaners Food Bank will be here.  We will be having a class picnic Wednesday or Thursday depending on weather.  More information will come as the week progresses.  Thursday will be our awards assembly.  Friday is a half day at 11:45 and report cards will go home then.

Monday will be the last day for backpacks.  We will clean out anything left in desks that day.

We are still in need of empty 2 liter bottles, and it is not too late to turn in $2 for our Father’s Day craft.

Thank you for a wonderful year.  I have truly enjoyed my time with your children.  They have each touched my life in their own special way.  Enjoy your summer and best wishes for an amazing fourth grade year!

Monday will be the last day to bring backpacks.  Please return any math bags, book bags, LLI books, or classroom materials on Monday if not returned yet.  Also, please remember $2 for our Father’s Day gifts and an empty 2 liter bottle.  If you have extra bottles, we would be happy to take them.

Next week we will be doing a Father’s Day project.  I’m asking all students to bring in $2 to cover the cost and if possible an empty 2 liter bottle.  Tomorrow is also field day.  We will be outside.  Please dress for the weather.  Please return all book bags, math bags, and school materials tomorrow.

Boat Field Trip Tomorrow

Tomorrow is our field trip.  If you are chaperoning please be to school at 8:45.  Everyone should bring  bag lunch.  Glass bottles are not allowed.  Please dress for the weather.  We will be on the boat in the morning when it will be cooler.  Wearing layers is strongly encouraged.  Wear Miller t-shirts with a hoodie or sweatshirt over it if possible.  A light jacket is a good idea as well.  Let’s hope for good weather.  See everyone tomorrow!

Boat Field Trip Reminders

Posted on

Next Thursday, June 6th is our boat field trip.  If you paid to chaperone and were placed on a wait list, you are officially on our chaperone list now as more seats have opened up.  All chaperones will be able to ride the bus as well, so you will not need to drive yourself.  Please check with the office to make sure you have a background check on file.  Anyone without a background check will not be able to join us.  Please make sure to be at school at 8:45.  Everyone needs to bring a packed lunch.  We will be eating a picnic lunch outside of the boat.  We cannot bring food on the boat, but there will be snacks for purchase if you choose to do that.  Snacks do not replace a lunch, so please make sure your child has something nutritious to eat.  Make sure everyone is dressed for the weather and and don’t forget to wear sunscreen. Sunglasses and hats will be helpful as well.  We are looking forward to a great trip!

Weekly Newsletter Week of May 27th-31st

Happy Memorial Day!  I hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather.  We have another short week and lots to do.  We will complete NWEA and DRA testing this week.   Because of all the heavy testing, I am cancelling the science test scheduled for this week.  We will continue to do math and reading lessons but they will be limited.  Students should still continue to read daily at home and practice multiplication facts.  For writing we will be presenting the research projects this week.   Tuesday is the last day to turn in permission slips for the Diamond Jack field trip.  We cannot take them after tomorrow.  If there is a situation where you cannot turn it in tomorrow, please contact the office.  See you all tomorrow!
