We had a “ONEderful” field trip to Hershey Gardens on Friday! The weather was just perfect and so were the kids! Thanks to all of you for remembering to pack lunches and send the kids to school in comfortable shoes! Our chaperones couldn’t have been any sweeter. It was the perfect field trip! Mr. Hardy will join us on Monday to talk to us some more about plants as a follow up to our trip!
While we were in Hershey we missed our book exchange day. We’ll exchange books for the last time tomorrow. I’ll also send home our last spelling list of the year.
This Thursday is our DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) day. Send in some books for your child to read as we relax and enjoy a few good stories together.
Monday, May 30 – No school for students. Enjoy your extra day off together.
I will be out of school on Wednesday and Friday afternoons this week enjoying some end of year activities with my youngest. We have substitutes all lined up and ready to teach our class.
Mark your calendar for our Doorbell Rang performance on Thursday, June 2nd. Show times for family members are 11:30 or 2:30. Younger siblings are welcome to attend too! Donations of cups, lemonade and cookies are welcome. We’ll share these with the visitors who come to see our show! If you will be taking any Eshleman children home with you after our 2:30 performance, please be sure to complete the dismissal form that was sent home at the end of last week.
Friday, June 3 will be our first grade water party in the afternoon. The kids may wear bathing suits under their clothing if they would like to have a suit on to play our water games. They won’t get soaked, but they will get wet! I’ll need some parent helpers to run some of our water stations. Please let me know if you would like to come in to help for an hour or so that afternoon. Mr. Heiney and I still need to pick a time but I’m guessing it will be close to 2:00 PM.
Monday, June 6 is the PTO SPLASH PARTY at the Millersville Pool. Donations are being accepted for the first grade “ice cream” themed basket. Baskets will be raffled off at the splash party. Please send your RSVP to school so the PTO can count you in on the fun!
Monday, June 6th will also be a book swap in our room. If you have some books that you would like to trade in, send them to school. I’ll let the kids swap them for a different one for some summer reading!
Tuesday, June 7 is our board game day in 1-T. Send some games in that first graders would enjoy playing together. We’ll send them back at the end of the day!
Wednesday, June 8 – Last day of first grade. This is an 11:30 early dismissal day. This year has flown by!
I’ll keep the reminders coming! There’s so much going on at this time of year! Thanks for all of your help!
