I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend. It was great seeing all of you at conferences. Your children excelled at leading their conference. I really enjoyed listening to them reflect and discuss their strengths and stretches.
As we discussed at conferences, this week will be a busy week for third grade. Please remember to send in a sack lunch with your child on Tuesday. We will leave for the symphony at 10:00 and return by 1:00. We will eat lunch when we return.
The international festival is on Thursday. Please send in your food dish and have your child already dressed in the attire they will be wearing for the assembly and taste-fest. The all-school assembly will take place at 10:00 and the taste-fest will begin at 2:15. You are welcome to attend both events. We are still in need of volunteers, so you are more than welcome to help serve, decorate, or clean up if you would like.
Please send in a plain white t-shirt by Friday for our KSA Super Bowl.
A big THANK YOU to Gina Reynolds for leading the V-Day party. It was definitely a success. The children had a fabulous time. Thank you to Mrs. Gipson, Mr. Bidnick, and Mrs. Burton for assisting with the party. Thank you for sending in all the items for the party. I really appreciate it.
The 5th grade is having a food drive for Saint Mary's food kitchen. Please send in non-perishable items to help support their wonderful cause. Also, Friday is pajama day.
