Another busy week!

Tomorrow ALL POSTERS are DUE! Students have had two weeks to work on their Hero Fair posters outside of school. We had our first brave presenter today. All students should be prepared to present their posters in class tomorrow. We will be presenting tomorrow and Wednesday.

The Hero Fair is this FRIDAY in the cafeteria at 2:00. Invitations will be coming home soon!

Also, Physical Fun Day is tomorrow afternoon! Please dress appropriately for the weather, and remember to wear sneakers. Water will be provided, so students should not bring water bottles.

There will not be a spelling test this Friday, since we are focused on the Hero Fair. Lesson 29 spelling test will be next week.

Remember, we DO have school on Friday; it is a snow make up day. There is no school on Monday in observance of Memorial Day.
