Date Change

Awesome Activity Day has a new date – Mark your calendar for Friday, May 26.  Students will spend the afternoon outside having fun participating in team games.  Please send your child to school wearing sneakers.

The PTO will be hosting a themed-basket auction at the Splash Party on June 5th.  To help offset the costs of the party, they’re asking for donations from families to build these baskets.  The first grade theme is ICE CREAM TREATS.

Examples of items needed are:  ice cream dishes, sauces, magic shell, sprinkles, assorted toppings (candy, marshmallows, peanuts, etc…).   Please send all items to school by Friday, May 26.

I’d like to send out a big THANK YOU to the parents of Eshleman and the Eshleman PTO who have made donations and helped to raise money for our school.  Thanks to your generosity, our class is able to attend the field trip at no cost!  You’re awesome!

Thursday, May 18 – We have book exchange.  This will be our last book exchange of the school year.  All books are due back to the library by the end of May.

Please check your child’s froggy folder for a field trip reminder.

Thank you!

Book Fair

If your student forgot their money, or would like to buy additional books at the book fair, feel free to send in their money tomorrow (Friday, May 12).  I will be sure they get some time to shop for their books.

I sent home a list of students who ordered lunches from the cafeteria for our field trip on May 19.  Please let me know if I incorrectly put your student on that list, or if you would like to have your child added to the list!  Thanks for your help!

Friday, May 12th  is a 1:30 early dismissal for students.  Please make sure any transportation changes are communicated to the office.

Happy Mother’s/Grandmother’s Day to all of you ladies who look after the first graders in my class!  It’s the most important job in the world!  Thank you!
