Last week was Teacher Appreciation Week and we certainly feel appreciated. On Monday morning we were given a very nice lunch bag that has already come in handy for many of us. All week long we received treats in our mailboxes as well. On Thursday, May 7, the PTA sponsored a Teacher Appreciation Luncheon in our Multi-purpose Room. It was a wonderful time to take just a few minutes out and enjoy a break and a terrific meal. We also had a drawing for door prizes. The staff would like to say a special thank you to the PTA for the lovely gifts and the meal. In addition, we would also like to say thank you to the parent volunteers who “took over” in our classrooms during lunchtime to allow us to enjoy the luncheon. We cannot tell you enough how much we appreciate all the ways that you help us!
This week students are taking the End-of-Grade Tests in Reading and Math. Please help students get to bed early so that they can get a good night's rest to be ready for their test. Next Tuesday fifth grade students will be taking their Science End-of-Grade Tests.
One important note of interest in our calendar is a change to the Kindergarten Celebration and our Awards Day Program. This has been changed to June 2. The Kindergarten Celebration will be at 10 AM and the Awards Day for Grades 1-4 will be that afternoon at 1 PM. The coming weeks will be very busy with other end of year activities. Please look at the calendar to keep a check on when important events are.
