LeTort will be holding our Book Swap again this year. Get ready to clean off your book shelves and check under your bed to find those books that you’ve already read!
Your child may swap as many as 20 books. We welcome donations if you have more than 20 books. (We can especially use intermediate books.) We will make sure that they get in students’ hands. Please bring in books May 20 – 24. The swap will be held the following week.
On May 20 (rain date May 28) LeTort will be holding our second annual Vocabulary Day Parade. Be on the lookout for paperwork to come home tomorrow, Friday April 26th with more information.
Most 4th graders have already picked their vocabulary word, and hopefully they have already shared it with you! We will begin working on the plans for these costumes within the next week. So… mark your calendars, pack the lawn chair and join us in the parking lot on Monday, May 20 at 2:00!
We hope everyone had a fun-filled weekend with their family! We know we sure loved the extra time spent with family and friends! Just a few reminders as we head into this week.
Math PSSA Testing will be tomorrow, Wednesday 4/24 and Thursday 4/25 for grades 3-6 beginning at 9:30am. Thank you for the generous donations of snacks, mints, and gum! The students sure enjoy those after long mornings of testing!
Next week, the 4th graders will be taking Science PSSAs on Tuesday and Wednesday (April 30 – May 1).
Blast from the Past forms came home over the weekend explaining this project and who each child will research. If you haven’t signed and returned this form, please ask your child to show it to you. They each received one on Friday. 🙂 Today, the students will begin researching their famous people using biography.com. Mark your calendars – the Blast from the Past presentation will be Friday, May 31st at 2:00. This is an event you won’t want to miss! Thank you in advance for all of your help and support with this project!
Over the weekend, every family should have received a small envelope for Laps for Letort. Thank you to those of you that already took the time to complete the letters inside the envelope. Many students returned them today! If you haven’t filled them out, it’s not too late! Complete them asap and send them back into school with your child. Every family should have received an envelope. They came home with the youngest sibling in the school.
Just a reminder – we are still in need of snacks for next week’s PSSA testing. Testing begins on Monday, April 15th. Some possible snack ideas include granola bars, Nutri Grain bars or other cereal bars, yogurt tubes, individual snack bags of chips, crackers, pretzels, goldfish, etc. In addition, we always appreciate any sugar-free gum or mint donations for the next few weeks! 🙂 If you’re sending in a snack, please make sure it is enough for at least 28 students, and you can simply send it in with your child or drop it off in the office. Thank you for all of your support and encouragement!!
MU’s Public Weather Awareness Day will occur this Saturday (6 April)! It is an afternoon filled with everything about weather. This event is designed for children and families, free and open to the general public 11am – 3pm on April 6th, 2019 at Pucillo Gymnasium on the campus of Millersville University. See the website below for more information and what it has to offer.
Just a reminder that tomorrow, Wednesday, is our All School Field Trip. We are asking that all students arrive to school on time so everyone is here when we are ready to leave.
Both Kindergarten classes will be attending school from 9:00 am – 11:35 am. AM students – it is a normal school day, except the students will be on the field trip. PM students who are bus riders after school will be picked up by the bus in the morning.
Both AM & PM students will be need to be picked up at the school at 11:35. Pick up will be at the BACK of the school, NOT IN THE FRONT. Parents should drive around back and follow the circle to the back door. Staff members will bring the children out to your car.
AM parents should have their child’s name tag in clear view. PM parents should have their passenger side window down and be prepared to tell the staff member who you are picking up.
Field trip forms for the PA Capitol will be coming home TODAY. We appreciate your willingness to get these back to us as soon as possible so we can coordinate chaperones and allow sufficient time for them to notify work. These two field trip forms will be due back to your child’s homeroom teacher by Tuesday, April 9th. THANK YOU!
**A letter came home last week regarding PSSAs and possible donations. Please take the time to read the letter and let us know if you are able to donate any items. ***IF you did not receive a letter or small brown envelope, please notify your child’s homeroom teacher ASAP. In addition, you may send back your three notes in the small brown envelope whenever you finish. We really hope that all students will be able to get three notes written by their family members. THANK YOU for ALL of your support in these next few weeks.
Father -Daughter Dance forms will be coming home today. They are due back by this Thursday, April 4th since the dance is Friday, April 5th. 🙂
Coming home this weekend will be a small brown envelope with important information regarding PSSA testing and a few surprises we have planned for the kids. This small envelope will be located in your child’s Weekly Work Envelope or in their home folder. Please take the time to review the enclosed letter. Please send back your notes in that same small brown envelope labeled “Return to…” whenever you finish. 🙂 Thank you in advance for all of your help and support in these upcoming weeks!
**Information about our 4th grade field trip to Harrisburg will be coming home on Monday! Forms will be due back on Tuesday, April 9th. Be on the lookout on Monday for two papers about the upcoming field trip to Harrisburg. They will be in your child’s home folder. Just FYI – the date of the field trip is May 22nd. We look forward to a fun and educational day in the state capitol.
