Weekly message – May 21-25
This Thursday, May 24th is our field trip to Como Zoo. We leave at 9:30 and return around 1:45. Please remember that while it is out of uniform students must be dressed appropriately. This means no short shorts, tops cannot be tank tops or have inappropriate writing and it is a good idea to wear your tennis shoes and we do a lot of walking. Students should have a lunch or purchase one from school (You have purchased a lunch if you checked it on the permission form). Students may also bring money to buy a treat or visit the gift shop.
PLEASE, NO NUTS IN THE CLASSROOM INCLUDING PEANUT BUTTER. THANK YOU.
Educate is the electronic tool we use here at school to keep track of your child’s grades. Most of you have already used it when you went to the web site at the end of each trimester to check your child’s progress. Beginning in 5th grade you can access your child’s grade book page at any time to see how they are doing.
