Just a few things:

  • Tomorrow is the Color Run! It is best to have your child wear light colored clothing tomorrow to school. Please note that students will not be allowed back in the building after. You may want to have some towels on hand in your car when picking up your child. A few students still have not turned in the permission slip sent home last week. If it is not back tomorrow, your child will not get to participate. Please join us for the fun, all are welcome! It starts at 3:15 out near the playground. I will do my best to take pictures.
  • There have been some questions about summer school. If you have filled out the application online already then you are all set. The last day to register your child is May 15th.

Happy Monday!

Hi everyone!

We’ve had a very busy short week so far! Here’s some important info and some reminders:

  • Tomorrow is popcorn day! Bring in $1 for popcorn.
  • Color Run! Info was sent home yesterday. PTA is having a color run around our school on Thursday, May 12th! We are asking your child to ask family and friends to pledge money for them to run laps around the school. Each lap they complete they will be “blasted” (gently thrown) color at! 🙂 It is a lot of fun and great exercise! The class who raises the most money wins an ice cream party! PTA supports our school in many ways: New books for the classroom, trunk or treat night, help with field trip costs, March is reading month prizes, and much more! Please help us raise some money so we can have just as much fun next school year! Permission slip on the bottom of the first page is due ASAP! Pledge form and money are due on Thursday, May 12th (please send in red folders that morning). Cash or checks made payable to Howe School PTA should be included with the pledge sheet. 
  • Our Mother’s Day event is tomorrow! We have all worked so hard on this and hope you enjoy. Please come to the playground door, we will start letting everyone in at 2:20, please do not ring the bell as we will be setting up. Please have your child wear nicer clothes tomorrow for some photo ops. Please do not bring younger siblings. We will start at 2:35, please do not be late 🙂 See you tomorrow!

Happy Friday!

Good afternoon,

I hope everyone is doing well! Just a few things:

  • There is no school Monday and Tuesday. There will be no spelling words or test next week, we will be reviewing.
  • If you haven’t turned in your April reading log, please do so on Wednesday.
  • If you haven’t already, please let me know as soon as possible if your child or you cannot attend our event next Friday at 2:30.

Enjoy your long weekend! Eid Mubarak to those that celebrate 🙂
