Mon. 5-27           Memorial Day NO SCHOOL

 

Tues. 5-28           No Spelling pretest Reading Unit 6 Lesson 30        

                             Memory: And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching

and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. Acts 2:42     

Wendella boat trip: We will leave school at 9 am. Please be sure

your child has enough breakfast in the morning to last until we return around 1pm.

If Hot Lunch was ordered already, they will be able to get that lunch when they

return. There will be 5 parents, and Mr. & Mrs. Mackie as chaperones. Chaperones

can sign–in and wait in the office and we will stop to pick you up on our way out to

the bus. I am requesting that all students wear uniform pants to avoid the

risk of being cold once on the Lake. No dresses, skirts, or shorts. Everyone should

have layers of clothing to keep warm. It’s easier to take off a coat if warm than go

without and be cold. If it is very cold once on the boat, I will let the chaperones

know if we will be purchasing hot cocoa for everyone. Otherwise, I would like

parents not to purchase food and drinks for their group. Once we return to school,

we will eat lunch, then finish our day. Maybe there’s someone who wants to bring

an end of the day snack or ice cream for everyone, or maybe a summer birthday that

we could celebrate.

 

Wed. 5-29           Chapel   S & T- Native American item from home

 

Thurs. 5-30         Memory: Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:6

Kindergarten graduation: Please write a note if your child will be going to the graduation to see their sibling graduate.

PETS: Our “Pets at School Day” is the last week of school from 2-3 pm. A form will go home next week that will need to be returned if your pet is visiting for the day. However, we will not be able to bring the pets to our room if there are any allergies to dogs, cats, birds, or critters of any kind. If your child’s only restriction is, “not touching or wash hands after”, that is easily done. Some pets do not wish to be touched and we will follow the pet’s parent for that detail. Please let me know in writing if your child will have a problem if they are in the room with our pets.

 

          Thank you for the many gifts for Teacher Appreciation Week.

 

Blessings,

Mrs. Mackie
