Hi there parents. Well, we are down to the end of the year and we sure do have a lot of activities coming up.
The first one to be aware of is our field trip to Zion. We will be doing this on Monday, May 16. Students need to wear sturdy shoes and bring themselves plenty of water to drink. We will be hiking. Hats, sun block, and cameras are good things to bring, as well. I do have enough parents signed up to go to help out with students. It should be a lot of fun.
Remember that Reading Revolutions are due on Monday May 16.
We have our Wax Museum on Wednesday, May 18. Students will come to school dressed as their person and will meet me in the gym first thing in the morning to set up. A letter was sent home on what they were to put on their poster board. If you didn't get that letter, it is quite simple, just have them put the name of their person they are being, and write five facts about that person. Make sure the facts and the name are big enough that people can read what they have written. Family and friends may view the museum from 9:30 until 11:00.
We will be touring the Cedar Middle School on Thursday, May 19. We will ride a bus there and then will be walking back to the school.
The orchestra students will have their final concert on Tuesday, May 17. This will be at Cedar High School at 6:00.
Our Field Day will be on Monday, May 23. Watch the weather and dress appropriately. Students will be outdoors most of the day. We will be having the teachers vs. students soccer game at the end of the day.
If your child reached the Presidential level with the Reading Revolution then he/she will be going to the Canyon Park with Mrs. Payne on Tuesday, May 24th for a delicious breakfast.
Our fifth grade patriotic program will be Thursday, May 26 at 2:00 in the gym. Please come and watch your child perform. The students will need to wear a red or blue shirt on this day.
Students must have ALL of their assignments in with an 80% or better by Tuesday, May 24 to participate in the tent-a-thon on Wednesday, May 25. If your child does qualify for the tent-a-thon, they will need to know how to put up their own tent, if they bring one.
If your child is missing a library book they need to get those in immediately. If he/she can't find the book they will have to pay for it. If the book is not returned to school or paid for by the last day of school, your child will not receive his/her year book, or their promotion card, until we get the book or the money.
Please remember that school will let out at 2:30 on the last day of school.
I have really enjoyed my year with these students. It will be hard bringing it all to an end. They are all such great kids. Thanks for all of your help and support this year, I have greatly appreciated it. Sincerely, Mrs. Little
