Week of May 31-June 3, 2016
This week we’ll finish up end-of-the-year assessments in reading and math, and we’ll review key content from throughout the year in every subject. Since we’re all getting anxious for vacation J we’ll be doing a lot of hands-on lessons and activities that are faster paced and involve movement.
We’ll spend time each day practicing for our promotion program and celebration which will be held the afternoon of June 9.
Thursday, June 9: Kindergarten promotion celebration, 1:30 p.m. in the elementary gym.
Friday, June 10: Last day of school. Early release at 11 a.m. No lunch will be served.
Library: A number of students have overdue books. Books need to be returned or paid for before your child will be allowed to check out books next year. If you have questions about your child’s status, please call our librarian (Sandi) at 445-1125 between 7:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Last Day: I get a lot of questions about the last day of school. The district’s last day of school is June 10 and it is counted as an attendance day for kindergartners, even though our promotion celebration is the afternoon before. We do our regular morning meeting, play a few games, and do some last minute cleaning up in the classroom. After recess we attend the end-of-the-year assembly and watch the slide show. If there is any extra time, we play outside until it’s time for the buses to come. It is a fun way to end the year, so I hope to see your child on the last day of school!
