Dear Parents,

We will have our reading volunteer party next Tuesday (June 6th) at 9:15.  This is a great opportunity for the kiddos to say goodbye for the summer to these amazing volunteers.  Students will continue t0 have the same reading volunteer next year.  We will sing, “So Long, Farewell” from The Sound of Music to their reading volunteers.  The students have been practicing in class and each child has a copy of the song.  We had to change a few words and cut out a few stanzas, but it is turning out to be an adorable presentation.  We will also sing this song to the 8th grade class, so if you are able to make it to the farewell assembly on June 12th, you are more than welcome to come watch. 

This will be our last week of homework!  Students will have a few math pages and will need to write the Gospel message.  I have put an “X” on one of the math pages.  Students do not need to do that page.  The math homework will require a standard ruler (inches).  I will include a copy of a ruler for your child to cut out, in case he/she does not have a ruler at home. 

This is a gentle reminder to have students return missing library books as soon as possible.  Thank you for checking at home for the missing books.  Students will continue to look for books at school as well.

The Poetry Slam was a huge success!  I was so impressed with the students!   Thank you to all the parents, grandparents and guests for coming to our show and bringing treats for everyone to enjoy.  Students should feel proud of themselves for the hard work that they put into memorizing and presenting their poems. Bravo!
